10 steps to help protect the natural and cultural significance of places
Australian Heritage Commission, 2000
This Website has been developed to help you protect important natural and cultural heritage elements of places.
It is based on the content of the award-winning publication: Protecting Local Heritage Places - A guide for communities.
The material in this publication is presented here in a new format which will take you through a 10-step process to develop a plan that will help protect a heritage place. The approach outlined in these steps has been developed over a number of years and is in line with the common approach taken by all nationally-recognised natural and cultural heritage conservation charters. This information is an important step in bringing the approaches to natural and cultural heritage conservation closer together.
Whatever your interest or level of experience in this field, the Protecting Heritage Places Website contains information which can help you. If you have time you will find other useful tips and exercises which will help you to complete the main tasks.
Along the way you will find examples of what others have done, and you can apply the steps to a heritage place you know by trying the short 'Have a Go' tasks at the end of each main screen.
If you follow these 10 steps, at the end of the 10 main screens you will have an outline of a management plan for your heritage place.
