Heritage Advisor

The Heritage Advisory Service offers free professional advice from Forbes Shire Council's Heritage Advisor who visits Forbes every second month. The advisory service is available to owners who want to renovate or redevelop private homes or commercial buildings, occupiers of buildings with historical significance, or owners of movable heritage items who want to undertake conservation work.

This advice can include the topics of colour schemes, extensions, verdandahs, awnings and fences as well as more comprehensive advice on the integration of new development in heritage conservation areas.

The free advice which is provided is of a general nature and should be considered as the starting point for more extensive work that may require an architect, builder or designer.
