Conservation of Australia's Historic Heritage Places
The Productivity Commission's inquiry report into the "Conservation of Australia's Historic Heritage Places," was released on 21 July 2006. The Commission was asked to examine the policy framework and incentives for the conservation of Australia's historic built heritage places. Some key findings from the report included: historic heritage places provide important cultural benefits to the wider community, in addition to the use and enjoyment they provide to their owners and users; Governments are the custodians of the vast majority of the most significant or "iconic" heritage places; and for privately-owned places, the existing arrangements are often ineffective, inefficient and unfair with a system not well structured to ensure that interventions only occur where there is likely to be a net community benefit. The Commission also considers that negotiated conservation agreements should be used for obtaining extra private conservation where the existing systems would impose unreasonable costs on private owners. This should be achieved by providing owners with an additional right to appeal statutory listing which occurs during their period of ownership on the grounds of unreasonable costs.
