Development controls and approvals

A development application (DA) proposing new development on land identified as a heritage item will need to comply with the relevant heritage development controls:

Pre-DA consultation service

You can submit concept design details of your proposal and our heritage assessment staff will identify any aspects that are non-compliant. We provide verbal and written feedback including, where appropriate, suggestions for enhancing the proposal so it is sympathetic to the heritage significance of the heritage item.
