Heritage & Conservation Heritage Items
Under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, Council has responsibility for identifying the area’s heritage assets and protecting them through environmental planning instruments. There are two levels of statutory listing:
There are over 240 identified heritage items in the Willoughby Local Government area. Heritage items within Willoughby include dwelling houses representing a diverse range of architectural styles and periods, churches and schools, as well as the more unusual items including a former incinerator, bridges, an open air theatre, gates and a clock tower.
The Willoughby Development Control Plan (WDCP) Part H applies to properties, places and heritage conservation areas subject to the provisions of Clause 5.10 Heritage Conservation of WLEP 2012.
WDCP Part H provides more detailed heritage provisions than contained in WLEP 2012, ensuring that new sustainable development respects and does not compromise the heritage significance of heritage items and their setting.
The brochure below outlines benefits and facts on owning a heritage listed property.
