NSW with the County Register of 1957, and that development is still continuing with the State Heritage Register. Initially, some regional differentiation in the development of listings within New South Wales was evident. This is disappearing as Local Environmental Plans (LEPs) listings become more widespread and inclusive. The distribution of items on the State Heritage Register is currently focused on the Sydney region. However, the continuing development of the Register through thematic and other systematic analyses, and the transferal of State significant items from LEPs to the Register means that they will become more geographically widespread over time.
