Community-Based Heritage Study

Between 2004 - 2006, Council undertook a Community-Based Heritage Study that assessed and recommended places for inclusion on the schedule of places of local heritage significance in the Byron Shire Local Environment Plan.  We also made recommendations for the ongoing management and protection of the Shire’s heritage places.

Read Council’s Community-Based Heritage Study:

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.

The Community-Based Heritage Study was adopted by Council on 31 July 2008. Council included the study's heritage items and conservation areas when developing the Byron Shire LEP 2014.
