Heritage Study

A heritage study investigates the history of a local government area, identifies, and then assesses items and places of heritage significance that demonstrate this history. The study explains why the items are significant and recommends ways to manage and conserve this significance. Council has undertaken or received a number of heritage studies over the last 25 years and in 2012 Council received funds from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage to collate and update this information in the form of a community based heritage study. A major premise of the community-based approach is that it provides an affordable means for communities to make a valuable contribution to the heritage study, with appropriate guidance from a heritage consultant.

The resulting Coffs Harbour Community Based Heritage Study 2015 consists of five parts:

  • Part 1 - the introduction,
  • Part 2 - a thematic history,
  • Part 3 - results and recommendations,
  • Part 4 - list of potential items, heritage conservation areas and demolished and deferred sites, and
  • Part 5 - includes the heritage inventory sheets for the sites contained in Part 4 of the Study (these can be viewed below).

The Heritage Study was reported to Council on the 14 April 2016 and Council resolved to adopt Parts 1 & 2 and note the findings of Parts 3–5.
