Heritage Citations and Studies

Heritage studies are detailed investigations into places which may have heritage significance. Independent heritage experts are engaged to research the history of a place or area and provide recommendations for protection through statutory planning controls that are implemented through the planning scheme.

Andrew Ward's Limited Heritage Study for the Rural City of Horsham(PDF, 30MB) (1998) identified multiple buildings with Heritage Significance which have been recognised and protected and continue to provide a sense of place.

Since then, Council has undertaken the Horsham Heritage Study (Grieve Gillett, 2014) to identify, assess and document places of cultural heritage significance and to make recommendations for the conservation of these places. The study was split into 3 separate Volumes which are listed below.

As some time has passed since the completion of the study, Council engaged with Landmark Heritage to review the study and to provide updated Heritage Citations to places recommended for heritage protection in the 2014 Heritage Study. 

This has resulted in the Heritage Study Review (Landmark Heritage, 2022)(PDF, 2MB) and a compilation of all the updated heritage citations in Volume 2: Heritage Citations and Mapping (Horsham Rural City Council, 2022)(PDF, 15MB). All of the above studies were adopted by Council on the 26/02/2024.

The individual Heritage Citations are listed below:
