A common misconception of heritage listing is that you can no longer make changes to a property.

This is not correct. Being heritage listed or located in a heritage conservation area does not prevent someone from making changes to a property or undertaking additions or new work.  The listing is simply a way to ensure that the new work or new use is compatible with, or complements, the heritage place.  Normally, making changes to a heritage listed requires development consent.

If you require any further information, please contact our heritage adviser on 9707 9000. They are usually available on Thursdays.
