RMLA Wellington : Heritage - Law and Policy Road Show

Date: Wednesday, 26 October 2016
Venue: Russell McVeagh, Level 24, 157 Lambton Quay, Wellington at 5pm

RMLA and Heritage New Zealand have teamed up to present the Heritage  - Policy and Law Roadshow, presented by Geraldine Baumann, Senior Legal Advisor, Heritage NZ.

Geraldine will deliver a compelling presentation on recent law cases to protect New Zealand's heritage, and will provide insight into key issues surrounding local heritage protection.

In this law the law and the practice can be brought together into a useful and coherent whole.  Also depending on the region the topics covered can be modified to address the actual situation for heritage across different regions in New Zealand (and in particular in post –earthquake Christchurch)

The core topics will be:

Archaeological matters – what is a site, what to do about it and how.  

What was the case Greymouth Petroleum v Heritage New Zealand all about?

What about Maori cultural values and how are they handled.  

What is an ADP (accidental discovery protocol) and when are they used.

Heritage buildings and places, wahi tapu and the ‘listing process’, Seismic strengthening of heritage buildings.

Interaction with the planning process and District Plans - what does Heritage try to achieve in planning provisions and why.  

Is there an overlap with the archaeological process under the Heritage New Zealand Act 2014?  

Incentives to retain heritage in New Zealand and help available.
