How old does a heritage item need to be to be listed in the Plan?
There is no set cut-off date for a heritage item to be listed. Best practice requires an interval of around 30-40 years between the construction of a building or structure and an assessment of its significance. That means buildings and structures dating from the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s can have significant heritage value.
