Council has many heritage items which tell a story of early settlement, the development of agriculture, timber and fishing, industry, government, education, leisure, tourism and the arts.
The Clarence Valley is rich in heritage and most of these Heritage Items and Conservation Areas are listed on Schedule 5 of the Clarence Valley LEP 2011. The Schedule is amended from time to time in response to changing circumstances associated with heritage listed items and the land they occupy. The most current list is accessed via the link to Schedule 5 above.
This schedule legally recognises and protects the heritage values of these places. You may own or be considering the purchase of a listed heritage property. A heritage study is currently underway for the Ulmarra and Nymboida former shire and this is likely to identify many places of heritage significance which are not currently listed.
You may own or be considering the purchase of a listed heritage property. Heritage listing still allows changes to be made but requires that any changes are sympathetic to the heritage values of the place. The best way to protect these places is to ensure they remain in use and are well maintained.
