Reasons for Change in Appropriation
The increase in this appropriation for 2019/20 is mainly a result of the new policy initiative for Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga to maintain and improve heritage outcomes in the face of increasing demand for its services nationally. In addition funding is provided to Heritage New Zealand for costs associated with the acquisition and repurposing of heritage property.
