We have over 500 items heritage items listed in the MidCoast which are protected for future generations to enjoy. These historic places form a cultural tapestry that helps us to understand who we are and what we have achieved. 

Many of these sites are also very beautiful, reflecting the history of our unique architecture and helping to make our region an attractive place to live and visit.

Our rich collection of schools, shops, homes, memorials and trees tell the story of where we came from. Examples include the many war memorials which are a poignant reminder of our fallen soldiers, and historic shops that celebrate our commercial past.

Before you restore, extend, demolish or change the use (for example, a home to a shop) of a heritage listed item, you need find out what rules are in place before you begin work.
