Scenic Rim Regional Council's Local Heritage Register
On 29 July 2014, Council adopted a Local Heritage Register for the Scenic Rim. The Local Heritage Register is a collection of 54 places that have local cultural heritage significance in accordance with the established criteria based on those outlined in the Australia ICOMOS Burra Charter 1999.
A Local Heritage Register was required in order to achieve compliance with the Heritage Act which, in March 2008, made it compulsory for local governments to prepare and maintain a Local Heritage Register.
