How to establish a heritage advisor service

Heritage advisors are appointed by, and report, to local councils. They provide regular and ongoing expertise to councils, communities and owners of heritage properties and assist in promoting urban design and heritage in the area. They work with council to develop and deliver a heritage policy and heritage strategy and provide professional advice to assist council and the community to deliver good heritage and urban design management in a local government area.

This publication helps councils set up their own heritage advisor service.
