Heritage Advisory Panel

Te Rōpū Kaitohutohu Taonga Tuku Iho

Help us strengthen our approach to historic heritage

We know how important historic heritage is to Auckland communities and we're passionate about protecting and managing that heritage.

That's why we're establishing the Heritage Advisory Panel for another term, from 2019-2022.

We're looking for community representatives and professionals to join the panel and raise the profile of historic heritage in the region.

The panel advises on:

  • heritage places and areas such as historic buildings and structures
  • archaeological sites
  • trees and plantings of heritage value
  • historic parks and open spaces
  • maritime heritage
  • sites of interest or significance to Mana Whenua

Join the panel

The Expression of Interest process for people interested in joining the panel has now closed.

For more information about the panel, read our Heritage Advisory Panel pamphlet and terms of reference.

The role of the Heritage Advisory Panel

The Heritage Advisory Panel helps us to strengthen our approach to heritage management. It promotes a shared understanding of how our historic heritage should be identified, managed, protected, conserved, appreciated and celebrated.

The panel is 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.

Meetings of the panel

The Heritage Advisory Panel holds scheduled meetings every two months.

Scheduled meetings are open to the public.

For dates, agendas and minutes, see agendas and minutes.
