Heritage List and Municipal Heritage Inventory

Pursuant to Part 8 of Local Planning Scheme No. 21 the City of Busselton Council has adopted a Heritage List to identify places of cultural heritage significance and worthy of conservation under the provisions of the Scheme. Landowners are required to seek planning approval from the City prior to development or demolition on any site identified in the Heritage List, and proposals will be assessed in accordance with Local Planning Policy 9A.

Properties of high cultural heritage significance may also be included on the State Heritage Register which is administered by the State Heritage Office. More information may be obtained by contacting the State Heritage Office or viewing the 'inHerit' online database.

The City has also prepared the Municipal Heritage Inventory to identify and record cultural heritage sites within the City, including places of cultural heritage significance protected under public ownership or management. The MHI is a record of places only and approval requirements relate to places identified on the Heritage List only.

The Municipal Heritage Inventory is periodically reviewed and submissions of information to update and complete listings are welcomed. Your submission can help the City to build the MHI as a record of significant places and representation of our shared community history.
