    • inHerit provides data on more than 23,000 State and local heritage places
    • Features images, street view and mapping functions

    Information on State and local heritage-listed places is now available 24 hours a day, seven days a week thanks to a new one stop online portal.


    ‘inHerit, our heritage places’ database was today launched by Heritage Minister John Castrilli at a seminar co-hosted by the Real Estate Industry of Western Australia.


    “This is the first time local government heritage lists will be available centrally online with full descriptive information, images, spatial mapping and street view functions,” Mr Castrilli said.


    “Combined with the State Register of Heritage Places, inHerit will bring together information on more than 23,000 State and local heritage places in WA.”


    inHerit was built by the State Heritage Office with assistance from the City of Fremantle and Lotterywest.  It will be maintained and updated in collaboration with local governments.


    “With inHerit, local governments will be able to manage their own listings’ data online and at no cost, replacing hard copy versions many authorities currently use,” the Minister said.


    “The ability to access heritage listing data at any time is of particular importance to industry groups such as real estate and tourism.


    “It is also a great resource for anyone, including students and sightseers, interested in learning more about local, regional and State heritage.”


    A range of new State Heritage Office brochures was also launched to provide more information on developing, adapting and buying heritage-listed properties.
