History

The Department of the State Heritage Office became a stand-alone State Government department on 1 July 2014. The State Heritage Office was previously a division of the Department of Local Government and Communities.

The Department supported the Heritage Council and the Minister for Heritage to identify, celebrate and promote the conservation and sensitive development of cultural heritage places in WA. It carried out the Heritage Council’s day-to-day operations, projects and service delivery. Delegation of responsibilities from the Heritage Council to the State Heritage Office occurred within the framework of a formal delegation policy reviewed annually. This included providing advice on development referrals and planning policies.

Under the McGowan government, the Department of the State Heritage Office, the Department of Lands, and the Department of Planning, were amalgamated to form the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage on 1 July 2017.
