Millers Pt crop

Community consultation

The Heritage Council of NSW invites you to participate in a community consultation on the future heritage conservation of the Millers Point and Dawes Point Village Precinct.

The Millers Point and Dawes Point Village Precinct is listed on the State Heritage Register.

This is an important and unique heritage precinct where remnants of early times are found amongst the modern city streets. Pubs, churches, archaeological sites and houses all evoke memories of past lives, past ways and our stories. From the rough-cut sandstone walls of the Hero of Waterloo pub, to the remaining merchants’ houses and glimpses of the harbour over rooftops, there is so much to be celebrated.

We are consulting with the community on ways to conserve the heritage values of the properties within this historic precinct for current and future generations while providing modern amenity. We also acknowledge the need for further clarity to guide the changes that owners can make to these properties.  

We are working with the City of Sydney to achieve this clarity by leading discussions about the community’s vision for the heritage precinct and developing conservation principles to guide decisions on future changes.

Whether you live or work in the precinct or are someone interested in protecting the heritage of NSW, we encourage you to contribute in one or all of these ways by 5 May 2021:

  • use the online interactive mapping tool to share what you value about the precinct and why
  • complete the 5 minute survey
  • register your interest via email to attend a community workshop during May 2021. Please note the number of places for the workshop is limited.
