State Heritage Register
The State Register of Heritage Places is a statutory list of places that represent the story of Western Australia’s history and development. These places have State historical significance and have the highest level of protection at a State level.
Places can be buildings, structures, gardens, cemeteries, memorials, landscapes and archaeological sites.
Heritage places are entered in the State Register after an assessment and registration process which includes extensive consultation with owners, local governments and other stakeholders. The significance of a place is assessed against a number of heritage values; Aesthetic, Historic, Scientific, Social, Rarity and Representatives. More information about the State Heritage Register can be found here.
If a proposed development site is on a State Register of Heritage Places or impacts a place on the State Register, then the application will be referred to the development committee of the Heritage Council for approval.
