Places that have been nominated may be considered for entry in the State Register of Heritage Places (State Register).
Not all places nominated to the Heritage Council go on to be assessed for the State Register. This is because places on the Register have to make an important contribution to understanding the heritage of Western Australia. Places are assessed against the HERCON factors which are provided at the end of this form.
If you think the place you want to nominate might be of local significance, you should contact your local government about their heritage provisions.
The information you provide in your nomination will help the Heritage Council decide if the place should be assessed further or if it is not likely to be of State significance, so please provide as much information about the place as possible with your nomination. For details about the assessment process please see the State Register of Heritage Places brochure.
Information in your nomination may also be added to the Heritage Council’s Historic Heritage Places Database, or passed on to a local government so they can consider the place for their Municipal Heritage Inventory. It may also be used to provide support for a grant application.
The Heritage Council undertakes to keep all personal details regarding you (the nominating party) confidential and will not release any personal details, except to the extent required by law or with your consent.
