Regulations m ade u n d e r the A ct include the Schedule on the N a tio n a l C u ltu ra l H eritage

C ontrol L is t w hich defines the categories o f m ovable objects th a t are classed as A u stra lia n

protected objects. The C ontrol L is t includes Class A objects w h ich cannot be granted a perm it

C onsultancy on p olicies to update the N atio n al

C u ltu ra l Heritage C ontrol L is t

The N a tio n a l C u ltu ra l H eritage C om m ittee has id e n tifie d the need to revise the C ontrol List to

enhance its operation. T his revision is envisaged as in clu d in g :

• com prehensively u p d a tin g the C ontrol L is t and m a k in g recom m endations on categories fo r

in clu sio n and appropriateness o f m onetary and tim e thresholds; and

• s im p lify in g and c la rify in g the C ontrol L is t, to m ake it more accessible and understandable

fo r users.

On 29 M a rch 1995, a consultancy project was u n d e rta ke n to review the C o n tro l List. The

consultancy team consists o f M r D uncan M arshall. D r M ichael Pearson fro m H eritage

M anagem ent Consultants, and Ms L in d a Young fro m the U n ive rsity o f C anberra. The cost o f

the consultancy is $ 6 0 ,0 0 0 and a fin a l re p o rt is expected b y the end o f O ctober 1995.

A p p lica tio n s received

The overall percentage o f palaeontological applications comprises 54 per cent o f the total

su b m itte d fo r 1 9 9 4 -9 5 , a decrease o f 8 per cent fro m 1 9 9 3 -9 4 . Despite th is decline, the

n u m b e r o f palaeontological applications rem ains at an unacceptable level as the vast m ajority

o f palaeontological applications relate to m a te ria l th a t expert examiners have indicated is o f

little or no scientific or c u ltu ra l significance.

There has been a decline in the to ta l n u m ber o f applica tio n s received, fro m 124 in 1 9 9 3 -9 4

to 87 in 1 9 9 4 -9 5 , a decrease o f a b o u t 30 per cent. The n u m b e r o f non-palaeontological

applications received also decreased, fro m 47 to 40 in 1 9 9 4 -9 5 . T his tre n d is in p a rt a result

o f s tre a m lin in g the a p p lica tio n process to tre a t app lica tio n s com prising groups o f different

objects as one application.

In each case, the a p p lica tio n was considered by the N a tio n a l C u ltu ra l H eritage Committee,

and. a fte r consideration, a recom m endation to refuse the p e rm it was m ade to the Minister.

The M in is te r’s date o f decision is recorded above. T he reasons fo r the p e rm it refusals are listed

below.

Application 257 — Victoria Cross Medals group awarded (ο E. T. Towner

• T he VC medals group aw arded to E. T. Tow ner is a m a te ria l re m in d e r o f the specific events

su rro u n d in g its aw ard: the h isto rica lly sig n ifica n t action by A ustralians at M o n t St Q uentin

in Septem ber 1918. As such, it is o f substantial c u ltu ra l significance to the nation.

• T he recipient, E. T. Towner, rem ains the m ost h ig h ly decorated serviceman fro m

Queensland and the m edal can consequently be considered to be o f substantial significance

to th a t region o f A ustralia.

• The Two out of the three expert exam iner reports clearly indicated th a t the cu ltu ra l

heritage o f A ustralia w o u ld be sig n ifica n tly d im in ish e d b y the exp o rt o f this object. I lence

the w eight o f professional advice requested by the com m ittee strongly favoured retention o f

the object in A ustralia.

Application 254 — Steam-hoisting engine (portable steam winch)

• fh e object is one o f the few physical rem inders o f the early h isto ry o f the use o f steam in

the A u stra lia n m a ritim e industry. It is the only kn o w n su rvivin g steam -hoisting engine fro m

the p e riod in question and has been clearly id e n tifie d as one o f the very firs t such engines

used in the p o rt o f M elbourne.

• Technologically, it is an interesting example o f I he influence o f A m erican technology on

colonial life , at a tim e when m ost m achinery used in A u stra lia was designed o r b u ilt in

Great B rita in .

• It has been sym pathetically restored to w o rk in g co n d itio n , re ta in in g m u ch o f the original

fa b ric, and the orig in a l appearance of the engine.

• The expert examiners were unanim ous in recom m ending that the object is o f such

significance th a t its export w o u ld significant I\· d im in is h the c u ltu ra l heritage o f A ustralia.

Application 261 — Avro Anson twin engine aircraft

• I lie a irc ra ft p la ye d a significant role in the developm ent o f p o s t-w a r A u stra lia n c iv ilia n

aviation. It is h ig h ly representative o f the m a m 7 hundreds o f e x -m ilita ry a ircra ft used to

establish p o s t-1945 a ir services th ro u g h o u t A ustralia.

• Vlthough the a irc ra ft had been m odified th ro u g h o u t its life, those m odifications are

evidence o f the h isto ry of use o f the a irc ra ft and increase its h isto rica l significance.

• 1 wo of the three expert examiners recom m ended th a t the a irc ra ft is of such significance

that its export w o u ld s ig n ifica n tlv d im in is h the c u ltu ra l heritage o f Australia.

Application 267 — Oil painting ’View of the Town of Sydney’, artist unknown

• The p a in tin g is one o f only a sm all n u m b e r o f available images o f the firs t years o f

E uropean settlem ent in NSW. As such it is o f outstanding c u ltu ra l significance to A u stra lia

as a docum ent o f early settlement and as one o f the firs t ( if n o t the first) o il p a in tin g s of

Svc Inev.

• R etaining the p a in tin g in A u s tra lia offers the best o p p o rtu n ity fo r fu rth e r research in to its

provenance.

• Two o f the three experts were o f the o p in io n th a t (he export o f this w o rk w o u ld

s ig n ific a n tlv d im in is h the c u ltu ra l heritage o f A ustralia.

Application 29» — Brown and May portable steam engine

• The B row n and M a y portable steam engine is the m o st com plete o f only three kn o w n

s u rvivin g examples in Tasmania and has a w ell docum ented and unique history. The steam

engine was displayed at the Tasm anian In te rn a tio n a l E x h ib itio n o f 1894—95 w h ich was the

last In te rn a tio n a l E x h ib itio n to lie held in A u stra lia in the 19th Century.

• The engine was speciallv ordered b y Messrs A. G. W ebster & Son o f H o b a rt as a finished

show engine fo r use in advertising and dem onstrations at a g ric u ltu ra l shows and s im ila r

gatherings in the late 19th Century. Its use in the p ro m o tio n o f steam pow er gives it a

substantial connection w ith the early developm ent o f commerce and in d u stry in Tasmania.

• The expert exam iners were unanim ous in th e ir recom m endations to the N a tio n a l C u ltu ra l

H eritage C om m ittee th a t an export p e rm it should l ie refused fo r the engine. One o f the

three experts gave p a rtic u la r a tte n tio n to (he loss w h ic h w ould result to Tasm ania’s heritage

ra th e r than A u s tra lia ’s heritage.
