Local heritage assistance fund

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council, with support from the NSW Heritage Branch, offers grants to owners of heritage listed properties within the Port Macquarie-Hastings LGA. These grants typically support owner’s efforts at conservation and maintenance of the many important heritage items in our region.

Funding is provided on a 1:2 ratio, up to $3,000 to owners of heritage items and up to $2,000 to owners of contributory buildings in conservation areas. For every $1 that Council contributes, you will need to contribute $2. If your project is $3,000, Council will contribute $1,000 and you must contribute $2,000.

What Projects are Eligible for Funding?

To find out if your property is listed as a heritage item or a contributory building in a conservation area, refer to Schedule 5 of the Port Macquarie-Hastings LEP 2011, then you will be eligible for funding.

The types of projects that are normally funded include: 

  • repair, maintenance or reinstatement of missing items on heritage buildings i.e. fences, verandahs, roof cladding and/or decorative detail 
  • structural work 
  • final painting of projects 

This year Council will consider all applications.
