Heritage Sites

Many Central Hawke's Bay places, buildings, features and trees have cultural, historic, spiritual, scientific or other special interest to residents, both Maori and non-Maori, and to visitors to these areas. These include archaeological sites, historic buildings, notable trees and waahi tapu (sacred places) of special significance to the Tangata Whenua.

The council is obliged to recognise and protect heritage values. The District plan identifies certain buildings, groups of buildings, objects, places and trees on Council land as being significant as well as consulting with owners and occupiers or properties where heritage buildings, objects, places, sites and notible trees are identified as heritage items. 

Such items are listed in the Schedule of Heritage Items & Notable Trees sections of the District Plan and are identified on the Planning Maps.
