Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The Heritage Council established a project in 2007-08 to prioritise and process the backlog of about 320 historic places and objects nominated to the Register over many years.

Having examined the list of nominated places, the Heritage Council gave priority to the assessment of private properties to give owners certainty in relation to how they can develop their properties.

Since this time 37 places/objects have been assessed against the heritage significance criteria as required under the Heritage Act 2004 (the Act) and presented to the Heritage Council for decisions. Of these 37:

    • 22 places have progressed to full registration;
    • 2 places are currently at provisional registration status; and
    • 13 places were rejected from inclusion in the Provisional Register by the Heritage Council.
