As part of the City of Stirling's Heritage Management Strategy, a Heritage List is used to identify those places in the Municipal Inventory that are of cultural significance and worthy of conservation.

Heritage List

The City of Stirling has created a Heritage List within its Local Planning Scheme No. 3 , identifying those places which are of cultural significance and worthy of conservation under the provisions of the Scheme.

The City's Heritage List is currently under review.   Stage 1 of the review was completed in October 2014.  It focussed on those parts of the City not within the Heritage Protection Areas in Mt Lawley, Menora and Inglewood.  Stage 2 will focus on the Heritage Protection Areas.  To find out more about the review go to Local Government Heritage Inventory page.

Rates Concession

Owners of rateable residential and commercial property, that is included in the City of Stirling Heritage List, can apply for a discount on their general rate charge to assist with the care and maintenance of their property.  The City of Stirling will invite applications for a 50% rate concession on the general rate levied, with the concession for commercial properties capped at $2,000 per property.  This concession will need to be applied for on an annual basis.

To be eligible to receive the Heritage Rate Concession, properties must have full value building insurance and a current pest control certificate.  More information about eligibility for the Heritage Rate Concessions can be found in the City's Terms and Conditions.

Applications for the Heritage Rate Concession must be received by no later than 60 days from the issue date of the current rate notice. Applications received after this period will not be eligible for the concession for the current financial year. Subject to circumstances, the City may defer application of the rebate until the following financial year.
