What is a Heritage List?

The Heritage List is a list of places compiled under the City’s Local Planning Scheme No. 17 which are given certain protection under the Scheme. The Heritage List is derived from those places in the Local Government Inventory with the highest levels of heritage significance. It does not include all places in the Inventory.

Planning approval is required for demolition, alterations or other development, in order for an assessment to be made upon the impact of the proposal upon the heritage value of the place. The City may apply incentives for the conservation of places and buildings on the Heritage List by varying normal development requirements where this will assist the conservation of the place or building.
