SA Heritage Register
The South Australian Heritage Register contains a description or notes with respect to places of heritage value in South Australia. It includes places and related objects of state significance and records other categories of heritage places in South Australia (including local, national and world heritage places) which are protected under legislation.
The Register is administered by the South Australia Heritage Council. The Register Committee of the Council will provisionally enter a place that is deemed to be of state significance and based on the outcome from the public consultation will either confirm or remove the entry.
There are over 2,215 confirmed state heritage places entered in the Register. In addition, 17 state heritage areas have been designated.
The Heritage Places Act 1993 also requires that the Register includes:
- local heritage places designated by a development plan
- local heritage zones and policy areas designated by a development plan
- places within the state entered in any register of places of natural or historic significance kept under the law of the Commonwealth (ie the Register of the National Estate, the Commonwealth Heritage List, National Heritage List and declared World Heritage Properties)
- state heritage areas
- heritage agreements made under the Heritage Places Act 1993.
Entries in the Register can be found online in the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure’s Heritage Places Database. The Australian Heritage Places Inventory also includes details about South Australia’s state heritage places.
