Design Guide for Heritage

Implementing Better Placed policy for heritage buildings, sites and precincts: Heritage Council NSW, Government Architect New South Wales, NSW Government February 2019


The Design Guide for Heritage provides advice to guide a broad range of design work in heritage places in NSW. This advice elaborates on the principles that underpin the Burra Charter: The Australia ICOMOS Charter for Places of Cultural Significance 2013 (Australia ICOMOS 2013), and is based on the design objectives outlined in Better Placed: An integrated design policy for the built environment of NSW (GANSW 2017).

The guide supports the many individuals and groups involved in conserving, maintaining, and using our heritage places. It helps inform owners, government, organisations, and members of the community about the value and opportunity in our existing built environment, and outlines the steps to ensure our heritage places are conserved, maintained, and enhanced through good design. It seeks to support the heritage consultants and architects who bring their expertise and specialist knowledge to our heritage places.
