Advisory panels

Heritage Advisory Panel

Heritage is a high profile and important issue to Aucklanders and Auckland Council. The establishment of a Heritage Advisory Panel is one of a number of measures, including a Built Heritage Acquisition Fund, designed to strengthen our approach to heritage management.

The panel is comprised of community representatives and leading heritage professionals. This collaborative approach between heritage experts, communities, owners of heritage buildings and Auckland Council allows for a shared understanding of how our historic heritage should be identified, managed, protected, conserved, appreciated and celebrated.

The panel, which first met in October 2011, provides independent advice on a range of historic heritage matters, including how to raise the profile of heritage to both the council and the public, and bring a new and fresh perspective on heritage advice to the council.

Since its establishment the panel has been particularly focused on how historic heritage is recognised and valued in the Auckland Plan, and how it is to be managed in the Unitary Plan.

You can find out more information in the panel’s Terms of Reference.
