What is a Local Government Inventory?

All local governments are required under the Heritage of Western Australia Act 1990 to compile and maintain a Local Government Inventory of places that are or may become of local cultural heritage significance. The inventory comprises a Place Record for each place which details what is known about the place.

Inclusion in the Inventory alone does not mean that a property is ‘heritage listed’. Inventories assist the City to determine conservation policies and provide background information about local heritage.
