Have your say - Proclamation Regulations

The Heritage Act 2018 (new Act) will replace the Heritage of Western Australia Act 1990. The new Act refers to “regulations” in many places, sometimes referred to as “prescribed” matters. Before the new Act can be proclaimed, a number of these regulations must be issued by the Governor in order for the new Act to function properly and effectively (referred to as the Proclamation Regulations). 

Your feedback is sought on the draft Proclamation Regulations. Feedback can be provided via an online survey or in writing. Feedback must be submitted by 5pm on 3 May 2019.

Online survey

The online survey makes it easy to provide feedback. You can select whether you support each section as drafted and provide additional comments on any of the regulations. You are not required to provide feedback on all the regulations, just those that interest you. Using the survey will make it easier for the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage to compare all the different answers. The online survey is available here.

Written submissions

If you prefer to send a letter or email instead of the survey, it will help if you include headings to help us identify which regulation you are providing comments on and make sure your views are counted accurately.

Email submissions can be sent to:  HeritageAct2018@dplh.wa.gov.au

Letters can be posted to:

An Explanatory Paper has been developed to assist in providing feedback on the Proclamation Regulations. A policy has also been adopted to identify the processes that support the use of repair orders.  The policy may inform any comments you make on repair orders, and can be accessed here.
