The Heritage Act 1995, administered by Heritage Victoria in the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, is Victoria's principle legislation for the identification and management of non-Indigenous heritage places and objects of State significance, historical archaeological sites and maritime heritage.
With 2015 marking the 20th year of the Heritage Act's operation, it is timely to review and modernise its scope. Information on the review can be found here, including a Discussion Paper which identifies a range of areas to strengthen the operation of the Act.
