Property map search
This property search tool identifies the zoning and site characteristics of land, which is useful information in establishing site constraints and development opportunities.
The Blue Mountains is well-known for the historic character of many of its towns and villages. In some towns and neighbourhoods buildings from the Victorian, Federation, Edwardian, Inter-War and Post-War eras create visually interesting and layered streetscapes. Many streetscapes are enhanced by mature street tree plantings and established exotic gardens.
Council has established ongoing recognition and protection for the many early houses and the generally traditional streetscapes found in most towns and villages of the Blue Mountains. These important historic areas are protected as heritage conservation areas. The full list of heritage conservation areas is listed in Schedule 5 of the Blue Mountains Local Environmental Plan 2015 (LEP).
The boundary and inclusions for each heritage conservation area are defined by an accompanying map, and the reasons for listing explained in the heritage inventory sheet for each area.
On 19 July 2019, areas of older housing, formerly protected as Period Housing Areas, were converted to new heritage conservation areas as part of Amendment 6 to LEP 2015. Subsequently, the Period Housing provisions of the LEP were superseded by Clause 5.10 of LEP 2015. Full details and timelines from start to finish on this planning proposal are under 'related sites'.
Use our interactive mapping tool to find out if your property is in a heritage conservation area, by selecting the “LEP 2015 Heritage” layer.
