Advantages of a Heritage Listed Building
People who own and live in Heritage listed buildings generally do so because they value the character and feeling of the building and wish to protect it. Owners of Heritage listed items have access to the free Heritage advisory service and grant incentives. Protection of Heritage items also requires Council to carefully consider the effect of any proposed developments in the area surrounding the item.
Free Heritage Advisory ServiceCouncil's Heritage Advisor is Mrs Kate Higgins. All enquiries for Kate can be directed through the Technical Services Department. A free heritage service is available to owners or prospective owners seeking advice on traditional building materials, repairs,alterations and possible new uses for old buildings.
