  1. Demolishing or moving a heritage item, or a building, work, relic, tree or place within a heritage conservation area,
  2. Altering a heritage item, or a building, work, relic, tree or place within a heritage conservation area, by making changes to its exterior, including changes to its detail, fabric, finish or appearance,
  3. Altering a heritage item by making structural changes to its
    interior,
  4. Disturbing or excavating a place of Aboriginal heritage significance while knowing, or having reasonable cause to
    suspect, that the disturbance will, or is likely to, result in a relic being discovered, exposed, moved, damaged or destroyed,
  5. Moving the whole or part of a heritage item,
  6. Erecting a building on, or subdividing, land on which a heritage item is located or that is within a heritage conservation area.
