10 steps to help protect the natural and cultural significance of places
Australian Heritage Commission, 2000
Step 2: Who has an interest?
Finding out who is concerned about and responsible for heritage places in the area you are interested in is important. This step is necessary for all future steps you take to identify or protect a heritage place because it:
- ensures the right people are involved
- helps to determine heritage significance
- helps to make sure that all of the important issues are considered
- helps to decide what future actions are realistic, will meet everyone's needs and will be supported.
You can identify the people, groups and organisations that need to be informed, consulted or involved in some way by asking a set of questions. More help is available by looking at some types of individuals and organisations and tips for identifying interests. You could also look at an example of interest groups working together.
As the mix of people with an interest changes over time, don't forget to keep adding to this list of interested individuals and groups as you go along.
