History

Under the McGowan Government, a series of Machinery of Government changes were made to the public sector creating a number of new amalgamated departments.

The Department of Planning, the Department of Lands and the State Heritage office were consolidated to form the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage on 1 July 2017.

The Department is responsible for land use planning, Crown land administration functions, and all aspects of heritage. The Department assumes Aboriginal Lands Trust responsibilities, as well as the Aboriginal Heritage functions of the Department of Aboriginal Affairs.

The Heritage Council of Western Australia and the Western Australian Planning Commission work in partnership with the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage.
