Council runs a Heritage Advisory Service where free advice from a qualified Heritage Architect can be obtained for heritage listed properties.
Heritage-related Development Applications (DAs) are referred to Council’s Advisor for comment. Owners are encouraged to meet with Council’s Advisor for pre-lodgment advice in respect of development proposals affecting heritage listed properties.
Note that detailed design is not part of this service, and owners should consult appropriate professionals if this is required.
It is advised that prior to making an appointment to see Council’s Heritage Advisor all heritage matters and queries be discussed with Council’s Planning Advisor, who is available Monday to Friday between 8.30am to 10.30am.
Council’s Heritage Advisor visits Council every 3 weeks (generally on a Friday).
