Grants to Assist Heritage Home Owners

Owners of Northern Beaches properties listed as items of heritage significance are invited to apply for Local Heritage Funding assistance worth up to $3,000 to carry out repair or conservation works.

Northern Beaches Council’s Local Heritage Fund, with support from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, provides grants of between $200 and $3,000 per property, but no more than 50 percent of the total cost of the project.

Mayor of Northern Beaches Michael Regan said to be eligible, a property must be listed as a heritage item in Schedule 5 of the Manly, Warringah or Pittwater Local Environmental Plans.

“The Northern Beaches has a rich and diverse built heritage that is a source of great pride to the owners of heritage-listed properties and to the community as a whole.

“Council has established an internal panel consisting of a Strategic Planner, Heritage Planner and Grants Officer, to review all applications for assistance under the Local Heritage Fund.

“This team will make the call on which projects will be offered a grant, and how much that grant will be, on a case by case basis,” Mayor Regan said.

Eligible projects include repairing structural components such as underpinning walls and repointing brickwork; repainting external walls; repairing or reinstating walls, windows, verandas, external balustrades, roof cladding, roof plumbing and decorative elements; and repairing historic fences, walls, drainage and bridge structures.

To apply, owners should complete a Northern Beaches Local Heritage Fund Application Form and return it to Council before 31 March.

To discuss your project or grant application, please contact Council’s Heritage Planner on 1300 434 434.

For further details, search ‘Local Heritage Fund Grant’ on the Northern Beaches Council website.
