Each year owners of Heritage Places and Contributory Places are invited to apply to the City of Tea Tree Gully Community Fund for a financial grant in order to assist with building conservation work. Priority will be given where urgent work is required to prevent the deterioration of a place and where the work will result in a significant contribution to streetscape character.
Grants are limited to a maximum of 50% of the total value of work and not exceeding $2,500. Work that has already commenced is not eligible and preference will also be given to buildings not previously subsidised. Grant money is paid following demonstrated completion of the project in accordance with the agreement with Council.
Owners of State Heritage listed properties will only be considered if suitable funding has also been obtained from other sources.
Council’s Strategic Planning and Development Policy Committee will determine recipients of Grants.
Recipients must also agree to a sign being erected at the front of the property advising that the conservation work is partly funded by Council. Recipients will also be eligible for a Heritage Conservation Award.
