Assistance and Benefits

Local Heritage Fund

Council’s Local Heritage Assistance Fund provides small grants to owners of heritage items and properties in conservation areas, for work that will improve the heritage value of a property. This might include maintenance work or reinstatement of missing original features such as fences, verandahs and decorative details.

Council in May 2016, following a review of the Local Heritage Fund, resolved in part:

  • It be emphasised that the approval of grant applications will be subject to the availability of funding and the eligibility and priority of applications.
  • The fund limits be changed to 1 dollar for four dollars (25%) to a maximum of $3,300.
  • Applications be processed and reported to 3 meetings a year of the Heritage Advisory Committee.

Applications can continue to be made at any time.

As an example, the restoration of this property in the North Parramatta Conservation Area received a grant from Council's Local Heritage Fund
