Provisional registration update
The provisional registration period has been extended by three months under direction from the Minister to allow the Council to further consider issues raised during the public consultation period. It is expected that the Council will make a final decision on registration at one of its regular meetings before the extension period expires.
We are looking at:
The Red Hill Historic Plantings have been provisionally registered on the ACT Heritage Register for their connection to Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahoney Griffin’s innovative plan to use colour to revegetate Canberra’s hills.
Provisional registration is only the first step to let you know why the Council thinks a place or object is important to the ACT and you, its residents. Now the Council need to hear what you think about their initial assessment to see if you think they got it right, or if there is other information to consider.
The Red Hill Historic Plantings of various red flowering plants are evidence of the Griffins’ vision to ‘paint’ the once denuded hills of Canberra using different vegetation at different locations. The plantings provide a direct, living connection to the Griffins’ vision expressed over a century ago which was an innovative, unique approach to revegetation and is one of the earliest known plantings in the ACT for landscape restoration.
Your views are being used to:
This consultation gave the opportunity for you to say if you think the Council has it right or wrong, or if there is anything else they should have considered.
A common outcome of consultation is the Council confirming or rethinking what is included in their assessment, or what a final decision may look like. This can involve changing boundaries or adding or removing features that make up the significant fabric of the place.

Comments on the Provisional Registration of Red Hill Historic Plantings
This survey is now closed, thank you for your comments and feedback during the consultation.
The Council has provisionally registered Red Hill Historic Plantings as a way to indicate that it intends to make a decision on whether or not to permanently put it on the ACT Heritage Register. The provisional registration sets out what it is about the place that the Council thinks is important to the ACT and why. This public consultation aims to find out the views of the ACT community.
This survey fulfils the role of public consultation under section 37 of the Heritage Act 2004 (the Act), and the collection of personal information as authorised by the Act. If you make a comment using this form, you will be considered an interested person under section 13 of the Act. For this reason, the survey requires respondents to provide contact details so functions under the Act relating to notification of interested persons can be fulfilled. If you do not provide your identity or contact details then the ACT Heritage Council will be unable to give you notice of decisions as an interested person under the Act. Also, you may not be able to be identified as an interested person entitled to appeal rights under the Act.
