Heritage items within the City of Canterbury Bankstown are listed in our
Local Environmental Plan.
The Heritage Branch of the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage maintains the State Heritage Register which lists items significant to NSW.
The NSW Government has developed the following seven Heritage Assessment Criteria to assess significance of heritage items on local and/or state level:
To be eligible for heritage listing at a local level, the item under investigation must satisfy at least one of the above criteria. Nominations for heritage listing on the state level requires the subject item to satisfy at least two of the above criteria.
Under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, we have responsibility for identifying the area's heritage assets and protecting them through environmental planning instruments.
Heritage listing also places certain responsibilities on the owners of listed places. Heritage listing does not stop people from making change to heritage items, however it is likely to place certain restrictions on the extent of change.
