Recent List entries and reviews

The final decision regarding entry of historic places and historic areas in the New Zealand Heritage List/Rārangi Kōrero ('the List') is made by the Board.  The Māori Heritage Council makes the final decision regarding wāhi tūpuna, wāhi tapu and wāhi tapu areas.   Find out about recent entries on the List and reviews of List entries here.

Anyone can apply to have a place or area considered for entry on the List; or an existing entry considered for amendment or removal.  If a nomination or review of an existing List entry is progressed, a report is prepared to explain why a place or area is considered to be worthy of entry on the List.  

These reports are often provided to the public during the notification process, so there is an opportunity to provide comment or make a submission on the proposal.

The Board and Māori Heritage Council consider proposals and any submissions received before making a decision.  

Once the proposed entry is confirmed, information is made available on the List Online.

If you have any questions regarding the process, please contact the Manager Heritage Listing
