Grants Boost Local Heritage Conservation

Wahroonga Residence, Purulia

The conservation of heritage in the Ku-ring-gai Electorate is being boosted with two $25,000 Local Government Heritage Grants.

Member for Ku-ring-gai Alister Henskens SC said that both Hornsby Shire Council and Ku-ring-gai Council will be supported with a grant of $25,000 each.

“We live in an area rich in heritage. These grants will ensure our community has the opportunity to celebrate and conserve it,” Mr Henskens said.

“It’s fantastic for our local area to receive this grant funding and ensure our local heritage sites are preserved for future generations.”

The project will be rolled out and delivered from mid-2023.

Minister for Heritage James Griffin said 86 councils across NSW are receiving funding through the Local Government Heritage Grant category, which is part of a larger $5 million NSW Heritage Grants program.

“These grants are all about helping local councils identify, protect and celebrate the meaningful stories and places that enrich their communities,” Mr Griffin said.
“Each of the 86 successful councils are being given $25,000 to deliver projects in their area, whether it be for running a heritage grants program, funding a heritage advisor, promoting heritage in their area, or training staff and the community.

“This is the 44th year of the NSW Heritage Grants program, which have helped deliver hundreds of fantastic heritage renewal projects around the State.”
