Apply For a Heritage Grant

Posted: 12 Feb 2019
From something old comes something new – Apply for a Heritage Grant

Locals may be eligible for a grant as part of Council’s Local Heritage Fund which has earmarked funds for owners of heritage items that have undertaken maintenance and restoration works – and it's only one click away!

Northern Beaches CEO Ray Brownlee said that items of heritage significance listed in the Manly, Warringah or Pittwater Local Environmental Plans are eligible to apply for a grant.

“This is a great opportunity for owners of heritage items to secure a grant from Council for their recently completed maintenance and restoration works.

“Eligible projects may receive a grant of between $200 - $3000; however; the works must be approved and completed before applying for a grant.

“This grant program is a win for the community as it maintains the heritage value of the Northern Beaches and benefits owners that have undertaken projects to improve their property and its heritage value.”

Projects that may be eligible for a grant include:

  • Repairs to structural components such as underpinning walls and repointing brickwork
  • Repainting of external walls of buildings
  • Repairing or reinstating walls, windows, verandahs, external balustrades, roof cladding or plumbing and decorative elements of buildings
  • Repairing historic fences, drainage and bridge structures

Previously awarded recipients have reinstated historic mortar on sandstone cottages and repaired leaking roofs and verandahs.

Applications are now open and should include a completed form, proof of approval for works undertaken, evidence of costs (invoices and receipts), plans/sketches and photographs before and after the works.

Applications must be submitted to Council by Sunday 31 March 2019.

If you think you may be eligible visit our website and download an application form or for more information contact Council’s Heritage Planner on 1300 434 434.
