Vaucluse House Plan of Management

The Plan defines the strategic framework for the ongoing, sustainable management of Vaucluse House estate. The Plan has been developed with regard to the objects of the NSW Historic Houses Act 1980, the NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and Woollahra Municipal Council's Local Environmental Plan. The Plan ensures that Vaucluse House estate continues to be managed to support the heritage values and significance of the property, whilst enabling the increasing recreational needs and demands of the community to be served. The Plan incorporates the mix of uses and activities that can take place at the estate including heritage conservation requirements, leisure and recreation opportunities; and the need for ongoing public access and amenity and appropriate commercial activities to continue onsite.

This management plan was prepared in 2010 as part of the nomination process for a series of Australian convict heritage sites, including the Hyde Park Barracks, to the UNESCO World Heritage list. The plan provides information about the national heritage values and potential world heritage values of the Hyde Park Barracks, Sydney, as well as the statutory and management framework that will ensure that the national heritage values and potential world heritage values of the place are protected and conserved.
