Heritage conservation areas
Heritage maps and database
There a number of heritage conservation areas within the City of Sydney's local area.
The Sydney Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2012 details the boundaries of these areas in its list of heritage maps (go to Links).
The City's database of heritage item inventories and conservation areas identified in planning instruments is located on the Heritage Council of NSW's website (go to Links).
While the information for many of the database entries is incomplete, preparing detailed inventory sheets is an on-going process that is being undertaken as and when resources are available.

To identify whether buildings and sites in heritage conservation areas are contributory, neutral or detracting, review the DCP sheet maps and select the building contributions map for the relevant area.
