Current status (August 2018)

Interim heritage controls for Canterbury approved (Amendment C264)

Amendment C264 has been approved and was gazetted on 8 February 2018. The amendment introduces interim Heritage Overlays to all affected properties in Canterbury as recommended in Amendments C266. Amendment C266 seeks to introduce permanent Heritage Overlays as identified in the Canterbury Heritage Gap Study.

Under delegation from the Minister for Planning, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) has approved the interim Heritage Overlays with an expiry date of 30 November 2018. This will allow enough time for the permanent heritage control amendment to be properly considered.
