Application fees for Planning Approvals
Planning applications are required for development of a place on the LGHI (Local Government Heritage Inventory), Heritage List or in the Heritage Area. Planning fees are waived for applications that are required only because of the heritage implications.
Heritage Rate Concession
Some conservation works to places on the heritage list or in the heritage area are eligible for a heritage rate concession of up to $1,000 per annum.
Eligible works include:
- Preservation, restoration and reconstruction to the interior and/or exterior of a place;
- Conjectural reconstruction of elements where original details have been previously removed;
- Works to protect significant fabric from deterioration and/or damage;
- External painting (but not to surfaces which were originally unpainted – e.g. brickwork).
Heritage Advisory Service
Owners, developers and prospective purchasers can obtain advice and guidance on proposed development and conservation of heritage places from the City’s Planning Officer (Heritage) or the Regional Heritage Advisor.
Heritage is important in understanding the story of our local community – our history, identity and diversity.
The 2022 Heritage Awards nomination period ends Friday 25 February 2022.
