Shoalhaven City Council has announced the finalisations of the listing of 12 additional heritage items, and two Heritage Conservation Areas, in the LGA.
The Queen Street and Showground areas in Berry are two spots now listed as a heritage item thanks to Amendment No. 43 to the Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan 2014.
A council spokesperson said the amendment updated the Environmental Heritage schedule in the Shoalhaven LEP 2014 and the associated heritage mapping to include these additional heritage items and conservation areas.
"The amendment helps recognise and protect items and streetscapes that possess local heritage significance and assist in managing character impacts in the Berry area by ensuring future development considers the heritage character of the area," the spokesperson said.
"Council initially resolved in September, 2020, to proceed with an amendment to Shoalhaven LEP 2014 and submit the Berry Heritage Planning Proposal to the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment for Gateway determination.
"In May, 2021, Council undertook formal public consultation in accordance with the terms of the Gateway determination and the resultant Amendment No. 43 was finalised and notified earlier this month."
The Amendment is available on the NSW legislation website for viewing.
