Existing listings


  1. Parties note that the Australian Heritage Commission (the Commission) has agreed to update the Statements of Significance and condition and description statements for all existing listings to incorporate the results of the Joint Study. Both Parties note that existing National Estate places will remain in the Register of the National Estate where the results of the Joint Study confirm the presence of National Estate Values.

Listings arising from the Joint Study


  1. Parties note that new listings recommended to the Commission will include National Estate Values protected by reservation, reserve management prescription, site exclusion, consultation processes or other measures appropriate to the value, or which are robust and not affected by harvesting or other off-reserve management regimes or activity.

  2. Parties note that the Commission will work in cooperation with New South Wales in delineating places for National Estate listing. The identification of these areas will be based on the following principles:

  • New listings in Dedicated Reserves and Informal Reserves, the boundaries of which are unlikely to change, should be distinct places and may be based on any National Estate Values;

  • Listing of other National Estate places outside the CAR Reserve System will be based on robust values and those values that are protected by forest management prescription. Areas of contiguous values will be listed as a single National Estate place; and

  • Boundaries for listing National Estate places will be based on identified values and will follow the boundaries of Dedicated Reserves, Informal Reserves, natural topographic features, management boundaries and/or roads as appropriate.

  1. For places arising from the Joint Study, only places identified by the above principles will be listed in the Register of the National Estate.

  2. Parties note that the identification and assessment of National Estate Values for the CRAs have been completed with the exception of Indigenous heritage. Parties note that the Commission will continue to consult with New South Wales and Indigenous communities in an effort to finalise the identification and assessment of Indigenous heritage places and values.

  3. Parties note that in the Upper North East and Lower North East regions some National Estate Values were dealt with adequately through the assessment of other values. These values are well represented in the CAR Reserve System through the conservation of other National Estate Values or of CAR Values. These values include vegetation succession (A.2), and vegetation communities characteristic of their class (D.1). Some values, being localised, are covered by protection mechanisms agreed in the RFA. See Tables 1 and 2 for further details. Other National Estate Values were considered by experts not to be present in the region or were not above threshold for consideration as National Estate in any known sites in the region.

Future Listings


  1. Parties note that the Commission does not intend to undertake any further regional studies of forests in the Upper North East and Lower North East regions.

  2. Parties note that the Commission confirms that, based on the Joint Study, there is no evidence to identify additional extensive National Estate Values in the forested areas of the Upper North East and Lower North East regions and that it therefore does not anticipate listing additional large places in the region.

  3. Parties note that the Commission will refer future nominations to them. The Parties agree to work cooperatively and in a timely fashion in considering whether such nominations will be recommended to the Commission for listing. Both Parties are to compare the nominations with the existing agreed Upper North East and Lower North East regions National Estate database, and to consider any new research or information provided.

  4. Parties will jointly agree on any future recommendations to the Commission for listing. Parties note that the Commission will work cooperatively with New South Wales on the detail of any consequent listings that may arise.

  5. Parties agree that all National Estate Values will be considered in forest management decisions and note that the advice of the Commission will be sought in relation to proposed actions by the Commonwealth which are outside the scope of this Agreement and which might adversely affect National Estate Values in the Upper North East and Lower North East regions. This includes any proposed actions that may affect National Estate Values in areas outside the CAR Reserve System and which have not been listed on the Register of the National Estate. Parties note that the Commission has agreed to take into account the undertakings in this Agreement in providing its advice, and will provide such advice in a regional context.

  6. Parties note that the Commission may delegate preparation of section 30 advice with respect to National Estate in the Upper North East and Lower North East regions to an appropriate official in a New South Wales Agency. This delegation would be limited to the Upper North East and Lower North East regions, and those operations that affect those aspects of the forest estate documented in the CRA.
