What does Historic Canterbury Places do?
We are an independent body that advocates for the preservation and protection of (built) Heritage.
Currently our efforts are spent lobbying Central Govt., M.P.s, City Councillors, CERA, Building Owners, preparing Submissions and Deputations, organising public meetings & rallies, letters to the editor, Media Releases, liaising with other groups / individuals and any related activities to ensure the retention of our Built Heritage is a priority.
As well as the above we are organising Member's Events to celebrate our Heritage!!!
What is Historic Places Canterbury?
Historic Places Canterbury is an independent society that is affiliated to Historic Places Aotearoa.
Historic Places Aotearoa is a new Heritage NGO. (Explanation here.)
The New Zealand Historic Places Canterbury Branch transitioned to Historic Places Canterbury (Inc) in anticipation of the NZHPT Bill currently before Parliament.
Why happens to the Subscription money I pay to Historic Places Aotearoa?
Most of the money is forwarded to Historic Places Canterbury.
[Historic Places Aotearoa keep a small amount for Administration and this Web Site.]
Thus far we have used the monies to fund Public Meetings and Public Rallies, donations for legal opinions and related expenditure.
Monies received are spent to save Heritage!!!
