Heritage area studies
Heritage area studies are inventories of buildings, precincts and other places of aesthetic, architectural, historical, scientific, social or other special importance within a locality of municipality.
The Framework of Historical Themes can be useful in developing heritage areas studies.
Completed heritage studies can often be found in local libraries or at the offices of a local council.
Please phone the Library prior to your proposed visit to confirm whether required resources are available. The Library is open by appointment to students and members of the public for research and reference only.
Paper copies of studies can be viewed at the Library but not borrowed. Where a hard copy is held, the call number is added e.g. Infralib 711.4099451 HAW:M.
A copy of Heritage Victoria's Model Consultants Brief for Heritage Studies is provided here for general information, particularly for councils contemplating embarking on a heritage study. However it is likely that this model will need to be adjusted for each council's circumstances and any council proposing to use the brief is advised to discuss its application with Heritage Victoria.
