Interim Heritage Orders

Interim Heritage Order Page Banner

An interim heritage order (IHO) is a mechanism under the NSW Heritage Act 1977 which provides immediate protection over “a place, building, work, relic, moveable object or precinct in the council’s area that the council considers may, on further inquiry or investigation, be found to be of local heritage significance, and that the council considers is being or is likely to be harmed” (section 25 of the Heritage Act). 


Council has been given delegation from the Minister to issue its own Interim Heritage Orders and IHOs are valid for six (6) months while Council undertakes an assessment of the heritage significance of the place. If Council should decide to proceed to listing the place as a heritage item, the protection under an IHO will be extended for a further six (6) months.
