Altering or removing a registration
A registration may be altered by changing the extent of registration or by removing a place or object from the Heritage Register.
The process of adding a place or object to the Victorian Heritage Register is a considered one, and a place or object cannot be added before the views of the owner are sought.
Once a place or object has been added to the Heritage Register, owners may apply to have the extent of registration altered. Altering the extent might include increasing the amount of land that is included in the Heritage Register, or applying to have the amount of registered land reduced.
Applications to reduce the extent of registration or to remove a place or object from the Heritage Register are rarely approved.
Reducing the extent of registration or removing a place or object from the Register would require the applicant to demonstrate that the place, or the extent of registration, does not adequately satisfy the criteria of the Heritage Council of Victoria.
Owners wishing to amend or remove a registration should complete this Application to amend or remove an item on the Heritage Register (Word 1107 KB).
Enquiries about amending or removing a registration should be directed to email@example.com.
Owners can apply to have permit exemptions put in place for registered places or objects. Permit exemptions are tools under the Heritage Act which provide an opportunity to identify works which do not require a permit. Exemptions provide an opportunity to save time and resources for both permit applicants and Heritage Victoria.
