Heritage Advisory Services

Council's heritage advisor visits the Shire on a one-day-a month basis.

The heritage advisor's role is to work with Council staff and management to develop a heritage policy and heritage strategy to agree on the areas that they and the Council will address; who will be involved; establish community interests and expectations for heritage outcomes; as well as resources needed to implement the strategy.

The heritage advisor will normally spend the morning of their visits with Council staff looking at current building and development applications which include heritage items. Their afternoon will normally be devoted to inspecting sites and providing free advice to owners. The inspections and advice will usually be on an appointment basis.

A key component of the heritage advisor role is to ensure that the Council and the local community have adequate access to heritage focused education, management and promotion.

Appointments with the heritage advisor can be made by contacting Council on (02) 6778 6300.
