The protections for any values identified will depend on the nature of the value and could include:
- advising prospective purchasers of the values and any statutory requirements (eg. Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Act 2014)
- recording the value on a relevant district plan, or other register
- creating heritage, conservation or other covenants or public access easements that are recorded against the land
- transferring the land to another Crown agency.
The exact protection should be developed in discussions with the relevant advisory agency, where appropriate.
