Local Heritage Register

Part 11 of the Queensland Heritage Act 1992 requires that local Councils keep a local heritage register of places of cultural significance in its area. North Burnett Regional Council engaged a professional cultural heritage firm, Converge Heritage + Community, to undertake a local heritage study to identify places of potential local heritage significance.

The Local Heritage Register was adopted at Council's Policy and Planning meeting held 5 May 2014, it was resolved that , Council adopt sixty four (64) of the proposed seventy-one (71) heritage places.

Background: notification of the proposed Local Heritage Register

Under the Queensland Heritage Act 1992, councils are required to maintain a local heritage register. In 2011, Council appointed consultants to complete a local heritage study, one of a number of specific strategies prepared for Council's new planning scheme project. A key outcome of the study was the identification of places recommended for entry into the proposed North Burnett Regional Council local heritage register.
The study recommended 71 places of cultural heritage significance that should be entered in the register. The places were identified following consideration of historical themes for the region, previous heritage studies, inventories of places (including existing heritage registers) and consultation with key stakeholders.
Part 11 of the Queensland Heritage Act 1992 prescribes the actions that a local government must undertake to adopt, create, add or remove places from a local heritage register. Accordingly, Council has completed the process required under the Act. Owners of the identified places, and the public, were formally invited to make submissions on the proposed heritage places and subsequently have been notified of the outcome of Council's determinations in accordance with the Act.

The process comprised the following steps:   

Owner Notification    Letters were forwarded to each land owner where an identified heritage place was located.
Public Notice and Submissions   Within 10 business days of the above notification, Council published a public notice. The public had 20 business days to make any submissions on the heritage places identified in the proposed Local Heritage Register.
Council Resolution   Within the stipulated period (80 business days from the commencement of public notification) and after considering the submissions received, Council at its Policy and Planning meeting held 5 May 2014 resolved to adopt 64 of the 71 places nominated on the proposed local heritage register.
Notice of Decision   A notice of decision was then sent to all affected land owners and submitters, in accordance with the provisions of the Queensland Heritage Act 1992
