Heritage consists of those items which we as a community have inherited from the past and want to hand on to future generations. The community of Pittwater has a diverse heritage which is embodied in those items which are still remaining and can illustrate past human occupation and development of an area.
The area has a rich and diversified heritage which encompasses buildings, monuments, gardens, landscapes, archaeological sites, jetties and wharves in addition to the natural environment and Aboriginal heritage. A comprehensive review of the items and places of heritage significance within the former Pittwater Local Government Area (LGA) was begun in 2012 and completed in 2015. This review, titled the Pittwater Community Based Heritage Study Review 2015, is the most up to date heritage study of the LGA. It provides a detailed thematic history of the LGA and reviews the area’s heritage items, conservation areas and archaeological sites. As a result of the review, Schedule 5 and the Heritage Maps of the Pittwater Local Environmental Plan and the Heritage Controls in the Pittwater 21 Development Control Plan have been amended. The Pittwater Local Environmental Plan lists a total of 139 heritage items, 6 conservation areas and 25 archaeological sites.
