Local Heritage Buildings

Municipal Heritage Inventory

The Shire of Carnarvon has Municipal Heritage Inventory which is now known as the Local Heritage Survey and is a document that refers to buildings and places that have cultural heritage significance.  Every local government in Western Australia is required under Heritage of Western Australia 2018 to have a Local Heritage Survey, which must be reviewed periodically. 

Development Approval is required for the demolition and/or development of all properties identified on the Heritage List.

For these properties, the Shire of Carnarvon will work together with property owners and developers to ensure the best outcome for everyone.

Please note that there are no formal development restrictions for properties on the Local Heritage Survey that are not included on the Heritage List. Owners are free to develop their properties in accordance with normal planning scheme provisions which apply to all properties in the Shire of Carnarvon. 

Places of high cultural significance may also be included on the State Heritage Register. To find out more information visit the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage – State Register or search the State Register of Heritage Places
