Interim and Permanent Registration

At the Minister’s direction, places are entered in the State Register on an interim basis. Before a place can be considered for entry in the State Register on a permanent basis, the proposal is publicly advertised for six weeks. 

The Heritage Council considers any comments received after the six-week period and recommends to the Minister whether the place should be permanently entered in the State Register. The Minister decides whether the interim registration should be made permanent.

Permanent entry in the State Register needs to occur within 12 months of the interim registration, unless a place is owned by the Crown (the State). Interim registrations are indefinite for Crown-owned places.

For all practical purposes, there is no difference between interim and permanent registration in terms of protecting what is important about a place.
