The Heritage Strategy is designed to provide direction for heritage management and to link heritage to wider strategic and organisation planning.
The Heritage Strategy is based on the NSW Government Heritage Branch’s ‘Recommendations for Local Council Heritage Management’ and is linked to the annual reporting template which is a requirement of the Heritage Branch for local government heritage funding arrangements.

Community Based Heritage Study
From 2004 to 2006, we conducted a study to identify and suggest important local heritage sites in the Byron Shire Local Environment Plan. We also provided suggestions for the continued care and preservation of these heritage places.
The community-based study methodology was chosen because it ensures that the community is not only consulted about its heritage but is also actively involved in researching and nominating items and places of heritage significance, and in considering recommendations for their management and promotion.
