Local Government Assistance

Effective heritage protection requires an integrated approach involving not only regulation, but also promotion and incentives.

Most local planning schemes provide for flexibility in the application of planning controls to realise positive heritage outcomes. Planning incentives may include the relaxation of planning requirements in relation to land use, density, plot ratio, car parking or other works.

Local governments can also be part of the Heritage Loan Subsidy Scheme which encourages owners of heritage places to undertake conservation works by offering significant savings in the cost of a loan. 

The scheme is administered by the State Heritage Office and the WA Local Government Association.

A number of local governments also provide financial grants or other incentives. For more information, please see our Local Government page Creating Incentives for Owners.
