Community Feedback on Cumberland’s Heritage List

Consultation has concluded

Council is undertaking a comprehensive review of Cumberland’s Heritage List. Stage 1 of this review is an audit of all local heritage items and places within the Cumberland Local Government Area, which are currently listed in Council’s existing planning controls. Stage 2 of this review will focus on recommendations for new items and places that could be added to the list as local heritage items in the future.
