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.
