What is an interim protection order?
Heritage Victoria can put an interim protection order on a place or object which is under threat.
Heritage Victoria will only make an interim protection order if:
- the place or object is likely to be of State heritage significance
- there is an immediate or imminent threat to the place or object
An interim protection order means:
- the place or object is temporarily included in the Victorian Heritage Register
- permits are required for changes or demolition
- Heritage Victoria has 60 days to assess whether it should be included in the Victorian Heritage Register on an ongoing basis
