Apply for heritage approvals and permits

Apply for an approval or permit to do work on a State heritage listed item and find out when approval may not be needed.

If you are planning work that may impact Aboriginal cultural heritage or environmental heritage you are likely to need approval. Depending on the heritage listing or nature of the work you may need to apply for more than one approval. In some cases an exemption or exception to needing approval will apply.
