A heritage study identifies and assesses heritage items in accordance with the key historical themes for an area. It also makes recommendations on policies the local council should adopt to protect and conserve the identified heritage items.

The local environmental plan (LEP) translates the recommendations of the heritage study into a legal document that provides a broad framework for future management of the area’s heritage. The LEP is prepared in accordance with principles laid down in the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, and the heritage items identified in the heritage study are listed in a schedule to the LEP.
