Guide to assessing cultural heritage effects for state highway projects
The NZ Transport Agency has prepared a ‘Guide to assessing cultural heritage effects for state highway projects’. This document describes the processes to be used for assessing cultural heritage effects for state highway projects and outlines the minimum requirements for each phase of project development and delivery.
The guide also gives effect to the NZTA's state highway project development and delivery standards, in particular the SM030 State highway Professional services contract proforma manual and minimum standard Z/19 Social and Environmental Management. The document is aimed at project managers, planners and cultural heritage specialists.
Any feedback on the issues that should be covered and extent of coverage relating to the assessment of cultural heritage effects for SH projects would be appreciated. The guide and submission form are available online http://www.nzta.govt.nz/consultation/cultural-heritage-effects/All comments should be provided by 17 August 2012.
