Heritage lists

Heritage lists contain properties protected for their cultural heritage significance. Places listed on a local government heritage list require special planning approval for demolition, additions and other works.

The State Heritage Office also maintains a State Heritage Register for places of statewide significance that represent the story of Perth's growth and development.

Register 1: Non-conforming uses

This register records recognised non-conforming uses under clauses 20 and 21 of the City Planning Scheme No. 2. Non-conforming uses are those uses which were previously allowed but are now prohibited under the planning scheme. These uses are permitted to continue in their current form.

Register 2: Transferred plot ratio

This register contains details of places that have been approved as donor sites and includes the transferable plot ratio available, details of the recipient sites that receive plot ratio with the amount transferred and the remaining transferable plot ratio on the donor site.
