The NCA is currently reviewing the HMP for the National Rose Gardens. It is anticipated to be finalised in 2022/23.
The National Rose Gardens is included on the Commonwealth Heritage list and is managed by the NCA. It is located within Parkes Place in the Parliamentary Zone of Canberra. This HMP also includes Parkes Place in the study area for context, although Parkes Place is not individually listed. Parkes Place is however, a component of the broader Parliament House Vista area.
Parkes Place, including the National Rose Gardens, is of significant heritage value related to its history, design, aesthetic qualities, creative achievement, social value, and strong and specia associations. Parkes Place is an integral part of the Parliament House Vista conservation area, and the Vista is of outstanding heritage value to the nation.
Under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act), all Commonwealth agencies are required to prepare management plans for Commonwealth Heritage listed places under their management. The purpose of this management plan is to identify, protect and manage the heritage values of the National Rose Gardens. This management plan was prepared in accordance with the Commonwealth Heritage management principles and the requirements under the EPBC Act.
This management plan was reviewed by the Australian Heritage Council.
