What Development Consent do I need for a Heritage Build or Renovation?

Kuringai home
Heritage listings are categorised into 2 main types:

  1. Heritage items – building, work, archaeological site, tree or place that has heritage significance.
  2. Heritage conservation areas – geographic area containing many different elements which collectively have heritage significance.

DA Approval

All development on a heritage-listed property requires a Development Application (DA) to council and almost all development to properties within a heritage conservation area require DA approval, with the exception of some very minor works.

This council approval requires the submission of a Heritage Impact Statement.



When is a Heritage Impact Statement needed?


Local councils and other development approval bodies require such a statement. This requirement could be viewed as a logical extension to a statement of environmental effects, which most councils commonly require.

The Corona Projects team understand the council’s controls and have experience with the preparation and lodgment of DA’s on heritage properties, both large and small scale.

At Corona Projects, we can assist you with every stage of the development application process from concept designs to DA determination and construction certificate.


What is a Heritage Impact Statement?

Known as an HIS

An HIS, together with supporting information, addresses:
  • why the item is of heritage significance
  • what impact the proposed works will have on that
  • significance
  • what measures are proposed to mitigate negative impacts
  • why more sympathetic solutions are not viable.

Photographical Archival Recordings

Some applications are required to provide a photographic archival recording of the buildings both internally and externally, if the property is to be upgraded and/or the existing buildings demolished or extensively changed.

Such photographic records need to be executed and lodged in accordance with:

Corona Projects is experienced in the preparation of photographic archival recordings.

Our experience enables us to identify key aspects of a place and interpret its fabric. This ensures that the resulting photographic archival record adds to the understanding of the heritage significance of the place.
