Heritage Schedule Review Stage 1

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Council has an ongoing role in managing and conserving the broad range of natural and cultural heritage sites throughout the Local Government Area (LGA). There are 475 heritage items and 9 Conservation Areas currently listed in Schedule 5 of the Wollongong Local Environmental Plan 2009 with associated curtilages mapped in the LEP Heritage Maps.

The Wollongong Local Environmental Plan came into force on the 26 February 2010 and has now been in force for over ten years. As an outcome of the detailed review of items a large number of necessary housekeeping amendments to the heritage schedule have been identified to ensure that Schedule 5 is up to date and that errors are corrected.

State Heritage Inventory

As part of Stage 1 of the review all the Local Heritage Inventory Forms have been updated. The Inventory Forms are managed through the State Heritage Inventory. You can access this information via an address or suburb search though the Heritage NSW website at https://www.heritage.nsw.gov.au/search-for-heritage/search-for-nsw-heritage/

Proposed amendments

The proposed house keeping amendments to the Local Environmental Plan are essential to ensure that Council’s Heritage Staff have accurate heritage information to assist with customer enquiries, development applications, planning proposals and are able to provide advice on various Council projects. The types of minor amendments required to address various administrative issues in the listing include the following:

  • Amending spelling errors in item names;
  • Amending errors in addresses and listed suburbs;
  • Adding Lot and DP numbers to capture the full extent of an items curtilage due to shifting property boundaries or incorrect descriptions from 2009;
  • Deleting Lots and DP’s to reflect changes in property descriptions such as subdivisions that have reduced the curtilage of an item since 2009;
  • Changing the level of significance of items from local to state to reflect the state listing of items under the NSW Heritage Act 1977;
  • Removal of a small number of items that have been demolished or are now covered by other heritage legislation; and
  • Relisting of 2 items that are mapped as heritage items in the LEP Heritage Maps but do not appear on Schedule 5 due to an administrative error
