About the Special Interest Group

Local government in Victoria is responsible for over 186,000 places and objects listed on the Heritage Overlay in the Planing Scheme. The Heritage Special Interest Group provides opportunities to bring matters relating to historic cultural heritage, Aboriginal cultural heritage, natural heritage and for some officers, maritime cultural heritage, to a forum of like-minded and experienced colleagues. The Special Interest Group focuses on advice and best practice, and the complexities of heritage protection, conservation, interpretation and community history engagement.

Online Teams community

This Special Interest Group is supported by an online community. We believe that accessing knowledge from individuals who work in a similar environment is invaluable and should never be underestimated. Our communities are only for people working in Local Government and there are many benefits to participating in them. They are a great way to keep in touch in between meetings, by asking your fellow colleagues questions and sharing resources. You can also see who else is involved and get in touch with them quickly.  Agendas, minutes, presentations and other resources will also be posted on the online community.
