|At the time of the compilation or revision of a town or regional planning scheme or a spatial development plan, or at any other time of its choosing, or at the initiative of a provincial heritage resources authority where in the opinion of a provincial heritage resources authority the need exists, a planning authority shall compile an inventory of the heritage resources which fall within its area of jurisdiction and submit such inventory to the relevant provincial heritage resources authority, which shall list in the heritage register those heritage resources which fulfil the assessment criteria under subsection (1).
|A provincial heritage resources authority may approve an inventory of heritage resources submitted to it by any person for listing in the heritage register.

|Within six months of the publication of a notice in the Provincial Gazette concerning the inclusion in the heritage register of a place falling within its area of jurisdiction, every local authority must make provision for the protection of such place through the provisions of its planning scheme or by-laws under this Act: Provided that any such protective provisions shall be jointly approved by the provincial heritage resources authority, the relevant local authority and the provincial planning authority, and provided further that—

|in assessing an application under paragraph (a), the local authority shall consider—
|the cultural significance of the place and how this could be affected by the proposed alteration or development; and
|any objection or representations under paragraph (b);
|where the local authority resolves to approve an application under paragraph (a) which would materially affect the cultural significance of the place and an objection to such approval has been registered under paragraph (b), unless the conservation body concerned withdraws such objection, the objection shall be deemed to be an appeal in terms of section 49 and the local authority shall submit the application and all relevant information to the relevant appeal body; and
|in the event of any alteration or development of a place listed in a heritage register being undertaken without the consent of the local authority, the local authority may require the owner to stop such work instantly and restore the site to its previous condition within a specified period.
