Local Heritage Assistance Fund 2020 - 2021

Preparation of Maintenance Plans

Minor Maintenance/Conservation Works to Heritage Listed Properties within the Hawkesbury Local Government Area

Hawkesbury City Council and the Heritage Division of the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet are jointly funding the Hawkesbury Local Heritage Assistance Fund 2020 – 21 which recognises the importance of conserving, protecting and caring for heritage listed properties within the Hawkesbury Local Government Area.

The effective maintenance of heritage buildings/properties is the key to ensuring longevity and their well-maintained heritage buildings/properties retain its originality and heritage significance for longer periods. Council understands and recognises that effective maintenance is critical to the long term protection and survival of heritage listed buildings or properties, and proactive maintenance is considered to be a key intervention in protecting historic structures/buildings by prolonging their lifespans. Without a systematic and proper maintenance approach/plan, historic buildings will deteriorate and will lose their functionality. .

Therefore, the main emphasis of the Local Heritage Assistance Fund 2020 – 21 is on:

  • the preparation of maintenance plans for local heritage listed properties within the Hawkesbury Local Government Area, and
  • minor improvements/maintenance works to heritage listed properties.

Council is now inviting applications from owners or managers of local heritage listed properties within the Hawkesbury Local Government Area seeking financial assistance under the Heritage Assistance Fund 2020 - 2021. Funding is offered to successful applicants on a dollar for dollar basis ($1 of grant funding for each $1 of private funding). The maximum funding available for any one applicant/property is $2,000 (including GST).

The deadline for applications is Monday, 14 September 2020.
