HERITAGE ADVISORY COUNCIL TWELFTH ANNUAL REPORT 2002-03 19 also provided to 240 development proponents regarding their obligations under the Act. Conservation and Management Declaration alone does not ensure that heritage places and objects will be retained for the benefit of current and future generations. It is important that such places are conserved and managed in a way that benefits both owners and the wider community. Council oversees a range of programs designed to both assist owners and to achieve the best possible conservation outcome. Heritage Agreements and Conservation Management Plans Under the terms of the Heritage Conservation Act 1991, owners of heritage places may enter into a Heritage Agreement with the Northern Territory Government. Such agreements are drafted in conjunction with the owners prior to being signed and registered on the title of the property. During the last financial year draft Heritage Agreements were prepared in relation to two proposed heritage places. Work commenced on Conservation Management plans for several declared heritage places during the last twelve months. These places include Hermannsburg Historic Precinct, Bonney Well, and the Anzac Hill Memorial. Government Incentives Package For owners of declared heritage places, the Government Incentives Package provides rate relief, free specialist advice and eligibility for high priority funding under the NT Heritage Grant Program. These services and benefits are the most comprehensive in Australia.
