The Tasmanian Heritage Register is the statutory heritage register of the Australian state of Tasmania. It is defined as a list of areas currently identified as having historic cultural heritage importance to Tasmania as a whole. The Register [1] is kept by the Tasmanian Heritage Council [2][3] within the meaning of the Tasmanian Historic Cultural Heritage Act 1995.[4] It encompasses in addition the Heritage Register of the Tasmanian branch of the National Trust of Australia, which was merged into the Tasmanian Heritage Register.[5] The enforcement of the heritage's requirements is managed by Heritage Tasmania.[6]

2015-2017 removals and additions[edit]

The register integrity has been complicated by changes of the list from 2015-2017. A state government push to eliminate 1650 properties from the register has led to several criticisms and the resignation of a senior staff member of Heritage Tasmania.[7][8][9]
