What is a Local Heritage Survey?

All local governments are required under the Heritage Act 2018 to compile and maintain a Local Heritage Survey (previously known as the Local Government Inventory) of places that are, or may become of local cultural heritage significance. The Survey comprises a Place Record for each place which details what is known about the place.

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