Heritage List

Under the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015, each local government must establish a list of places that are of cultural heritage significance and worthy of conservation. If a property is included on the Heritage List, development approval will be required for demolition, alterations or other development affecting the cultural heritage significance of the place.

Municipal Heritage Inventory

Local governments are required under section 45 of the Heritage of Western Australia Act 1990 to prepare a Municipal Heritage Inventory (MHI) to recognise the heritage importance of places to the local community.  The MHI identifies local heritage assets in a systematic fashion, and provides the base information needed for local heritage planning to achieve consistency, strategic direction, and community support.
