Following an inspection by the Heritage Office and discussions with the owner an Interim Conservation Order was placed on 25 May 1979.

Following the placement of the Interim Conservation Order, the management of the CBC Bank, with advice from the Heritage Office, undertook to renovate, repair and adapt the premises. The work carried out reinforced the buildings important civic contribution to Dubbo.

A Permanent Conservation Order was placed over the property on 4 September 1981.
