Our district has a diverse history. Historic buildings and places are important in helping tell the stories that shaped both the district and Aotearoa New Zealand. Protecting and managing Hastings’ significant heritage items leaves a lasting legacy for future generations. Landowners and interest groups have worked hard to preserve our heritage and share it with others.
The heritage features of the Hastings district are not limited to the city centre; they are also found in the wider Hastings urban area, Havelock North and throughout the rural area. Information on the individual significant heritage buildings, areas and items currently protected via the District Plan are displayed in the browser below.
The District Plan identifies and protects some heritage, however additional items could be added to provide broader recognition of the district’s heritage and ensure our heritage is preserved for future generations. We are therefore looking for nominations from the community for future historic heritage buildings, items or areas to be researched and potentially included in our District Plan.
