Heritage Assistance Grants and Heritage Advisory Program
The City of Shoalhaven provides a heritage assistance programme for owners of heritage listed items listed in the Shoalhaven Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2014, or other items of heritage significance, whose activities and initiatives aim to improve the quality of the city's heritage and built environment.
Council continues its commitment to local heritage by supporting grants offered by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) which assist Council to employ a Heritage Advisor and to run an annual Local Heritage Assistance Fund to provide grants of up to $5,000 for a wide range of small heritage projects including general maintenance, adaptive reuse, or sympathetic alterations/additions for heritage items.
The Local Heritage Assistance Fund Grants Program provides small grants for local heritage projects to encourage owners of heritage items, sites and buildings of heritage significance to undertake new minor conservation work and maintenance which, without the financial assistance of the grant, may not be able to occur. In doing so, the quality of the City’s heritage is improved.
