Heritage reports

Ku-ring-gai Council regularly commissions independent heritage consultants to assess and make recommendations on Ku-ring-gai’s heritage.

Later heritage consultants will generally draw upon the work of earlier consultants in preparing their reports. This provides for best-practice in heritage management and an ongoing review of those places and areas important to Ku-ring-gai.

Copies of some of the most recent heritage reports and reviews are available in the Local Studies Collection at Gordon Library.
