The National Capital Authority (NCA) manages the Australian Government's continuing interest in the planning and development of Canberra as the Australian National Capital. Parkes Place and National Rose Gardens are included on the Commonwealth Heritage List and managed by the NCA.

To guide the management of these places the NCA has prepared a heritage management plan to identify, protect and manage the heritage values. The management plan have been prepared in accordance with the heritage management principles and requirements for management plans for Commonwealth Heritage places set out in the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.

The final plan has been considered by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities.
