Conservation Management Documents
The Conservation Management Strategy (CMS) and Conservation Management Plan (CMP) are guiding documents for the conservation and future use of a heritage place. They identify what elements are of cultural heritage significance, and ensure all future maintenance, conservation and development is done with close consideration of these significant elements.
Not all registered places have a CMS or a CMP, and they are not statutorily binding documents. They assist in understanding and assessing development and maintenance works proposed for a heritage place. If you wish to see if Conservation Management Documents exist for a heritage place check under the State Heritage Office "library entries" section for the place on the inHerit Database.
