Parliament House Vista Heritage Management Plan

This heritage management plan for the Parliament House Vista provides a sound basis for the good management and conservation of this place and its heritage significance. It was prepared in accordance with the heritage management principles and requirements for management plans set out in the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. The plan:

  • describes the Parliament House Vista;
  • provides an overview of the history of the place;
  • offers evidence related to aesthetic and social values;
  • analyses all of this evidence and provides a statement of significance for the place;
  • considers opportunities and constraints affecting the management of the Parliament House Vista; and
  • provides a conservation policy and implementation strategies to guide management and conservation.

The Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities has considered the final report.
