Compliance with conditions

Submit your documentation to satisfy compliance with heritage approval conditions.

Approvals under the Heritage Act 1977 always include conditions. Sometimes the conditions are as simple as listing the approved plans and specifying the duration of the approval. Other times the conditions modify the proposal, specify timeframes or reports, or require submission of additional documentation such as photographic archival recordings or interpretation plans.

Conditions can be divided into reportable and non-reportable conditions. Reportable conditions require a submission of information, usually documents.

We refer to submissions relating to reportable conditions as ‘compliance with conditions’ or ‘post approval’ documentation.
