This chapter addresses the issues relating to significant natural values and cultural heritage in the District. Much of the distinctive character of the District is derived from these features.
Heritage issues in Tasman District are separated into buildings and structures, natural areas, protected trees, archaeological sites and sites of significance to Māori.
Issues are identified, and there are objectives, policies and methods of implementation. Principal reasons and explanations are included along with performance monitoring indicators. There are also stated anticipated environmental results. The criteria for the listing of the various significant natural items and areas, and cultural heritage items and areas are also included here.
