Project Information

The Shire of York is currently undertaking a review of the Municipal Heritage Inventory and Heritage List. The Municipal Heritage Inventory is a list of places, that in the opinion of the local authority are or may become culturally heritage significant. The Shire of York’s current Municipal Heritage Inventory was adopted at Ordinary Council Meeting 22 September 2008, recognising 145 places or buildings of local cultural heritage significance (including two heritage precincts).

Places which are considered as having cultural heritage significance and worthy of built heritage conservation can be included on a Heritage List, adopted under a local planning scheme, which can provide statutory controls for development on buildings or places on the heritage list. The Shire’s Heritage List is the same as the MHI, and is listed in the Shire of York’s Local Planning Policy No. 3 Heritage Precincts and Places in Appendix A. The Heritage List is compiled with regard to the MHI.   

Further information on the Municipal Heritage Inventory and Heritage List review and FAQ’s is available here. If you would like to be placed on the consultation list to be notified at key points in the review process please contact the Shire.
