Heritage studies

Industry and architecture

To ensure appropriate future management of certain heritage items the City of Sydney is undertaking 2 studies that cover industrial resources and the city's architecture.

The heritage significance of industrial resources is being studied to provide an historical overview of the different types of industries that have developed and the role the industrial sector played in its planning and development across the local area.

The 'modern movement' in architecture within central Sydney is being studied to identify the key characteristics and styles that developed from the 1930s through to the 1970s. The study aims to provide a contextual framework for appropriate understanding and assessment of 20th century heritage items.

Database review

To create a user-friendly database the City is updating the heritage inventory listings to reflect schedule 5 of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan. A methodology for the ongoing maintenance of the database is also being developed.
