Have your say on potential new additions to the Cumberland Heritage List
Cumberland City Council is seeking early feedback on potential new heritage items (i.e. buildings and places) and conservation areas for Cumberland City.
As part of the recent Cumberland Heritage Study, a number of properties, sites, and areas across the Cumberland City were identified for their unique heritage characteristics and we’re currently exploring the possibility of adding these sites to the Cumberland Heritage List. These include over 60 potential heritage items, four potential heritage conservation areas, and one potential extension of an existing heritage conservation area.
On 21 April 2021, Council resolved to proceed with early community consultation on these potential new additions to Cumberland’s Heritage List. The feedback from this consultation will inform the preparation of a Planning Proposal to amend the Heritage List in the Cumberland Local Environmental Plan.
On this webpage, you can find dedicated information sheets for each of the heritage items and conservation areas that are being considered for addition to the Cumberland Heritage List. Each of the dedicated information sheets is linked on the right, and provides:
- Details about the item or area
- Why the item or area is important and significant in Cumberland City’s history
- A map depicting the location and extent of the item or area
A summary table of all the potential new heritage items and conservation areas can be found in the document library.
For further information about what heritage listing is and what it means, please refer to:
