Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Act 2014
This piece of legislation is important for two reasons when you undertake seismic strengthening works on an earthquake-prone heritage building.
- provides for the New Zealand Heritage List/Rārangi Kōrero, which identifies New Zealand’s significant and valued historical and cultural heritage places
- makes it unlawful for anyone to modify or destroy, or cause to be modified or destroyed, all or part of an archaeological site without first getting the authority of Heritage New Zealand.
