The conservation lands in the Nelson/Tasman region contain a rich variety of historic heritage sites. The core values of these sites are recorded in a sites database, and the management aim is to protect them from harmful actions. Some sites of high cultural heritage values are designated as ‘actively managed’.
The management aim for these sites is to stabilise their historic fabric to minimise deterioration and to provide facilities to create a memorable visitor experience.
This site improvement work is being progressively achieved as budgets permit, along with heritage fact sheets for each of these sites.
