D&B-Heritage Notification Form

Heritage Notification Form

Use this form to seek Council's endorsement of a proposed development as being regarded as:
 
  • 'Minor work' or 'Maintenance' not likely to affect the heritage significance of a heritage item or property within a heritage conservation area.
Under the Newcastle Local Environment Plan 2012, maintenance is defined as 'ongoing protective care, it does not include the removal or disturbance of existing fabric, alterations (such as carrying out extensions or additions) or the introduction of new materials or technology'.

Such works may include repairs, painting and private tree removal.

If Council's endorsement is not given, you will be required to lodge a Development Application in accordance with Clause 5.10(3) of the Newcastle Local Environment Plan 2012.

This form should not be used for applications from utility service providers proposing utilities works which relate to a heritage item or property within a heritage conservation area.

Our Assets and Projects team are responsible for assessing such applications, including the assessment of the likely heritage impact from the proposed works.  Contact Assets and Projects on (02) 4974 2000 or at utilities@ncc.nsw.gov.au
