CTA joined Historic Places Aotearoa earlier this year as an associate member and we are now receiving copies of HPA’s newsletters.

Heritage New Zealand, the Crown entity that replaced the New Zealand Historic Places Trust, operates under the Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Act 2014. The trust’s regional branch committees were abolished under this same Act.
In 2013, a number of former branch committees reformed under the HPA banner to to represent historic heritage interests nationally. Its main aims are to help preserve historic places in Aotearoa New Zealand for the benefit of present and future generations; to lift awareness and appreciation of heritage values; and help regional societies promote heritage.
