The aim of the fund is to provide financial assistance to owners of historic properties or within conservation areas to undertake conservation works on their properties. The overall aim being to encourage conservation of the heritage values of the area and to stimulate restoration.
The program applies to rural, village and town places, including private, public and commercial properties. Weddin Shire's heritage values include occupied buildings, outbuildings, industrial structures, ruins, cultural landscapes and significant trees, mining sites, fences, streetscapes and views.
Successful applicants will be reimbursed up to 50% of the cost of conservation. This amount is payable only on completion of the works. Applications for these grants are usually sought around June each year.
Please contact the Environmental Services Department at the Shire Office for further information.
Applications for the 2020/2021 Weddin Local Heritage Assistance Grants are now open.
Applications close at 4:00pm on Tuesday 4 August 2020.
