A Local Heritage Assistance Fund has been established by Council with the aid of a grant from the NSW Heritage Office. Owners of heritage properties are now invited to apply for funding under the Heritage Assistance Fund.
Eligible projects are those which involve the repair, maintenance or reinstatement of missing items on heritage buildings. These include fences, verandahs, roof cladding and decorative detail, structural work through to final painting of projects. Owners of buildings in the CBD are particularly invited to apply as priority will be given to these properties.
Application forms and guidelines are available from Council’s Department of Development, Planning & Regulatory Services at 136 Church Street between 8.30am and 4.30pm or by phoning (02) 6730 2350, or can be downloaded from Council’s website: https://www.gisc.nsw.gov.au/heritage-assistance-fund
