Welcome to the new Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage
The department is responsible for planning and managing land and heritage for all Western Australians – now and into the future.
We undertake key activities relating to land use planning, the land supply chain, land administration and asset management, all aspects of heritage, and Aboriginal lands and heritage.
The new department is a result of State Government reforms to encourage more collaboration and greater efficiencies within the public sector. It incorporates the former departments of Planning, Lands, State Heritage Office and the Aboriginal lands and heritage functions of the former Department of Aboriginal Affairs.
