Heritage conservation areas
Mapping our heritage
The maps available for download below show heritage conservation areas, categorising the buildings in the immediate area.
Maps for other heritage conservation areas are being prepared and will be available in the future.
Buildings are described as contributory, neutral and detracting.
- Significant historical period layer, highly or substantially intact.
- Significant historical period layer, altered, yet recognisable and reversible.
- Significant historical period layer, altered in form, unlikely to be reversed.
- New sympathetic layer or representative of a new layer.
- Non significant historical period layer.
- Refers to either scale, materials or details.
- New detracting development.
- Other detracting development.
The City's Heritage Development Control Plan further explains these terms.
The City has a database of listed heritage items, conservation areas, streetscapes and archaeological sites in the local area that are identified in our planning instruments, which is housed on the NSW Heritage Branch website (link below).
For many of the entries, the information is incomplete. Our preparation of detailed inventory sheets is an ongoing process that is being undertaken when resources are available.
