Established in 1998, Mosman Heritage Fund is celebrating its 20th year. Over the last two decades it has funded works including roof restoration, brick tuck pointing, fencing replacement and facade restoration, including the above example of a property located on Spencer Road within the Holt Estate Heritage Conservation Area that has been transformed by the reinstatement of the open front verandah. The matching verandah posts and timber framed windows contribute to an enhanced streetscape in the conservation area. Small reinstatement projects like this are just the sort of works Council would like to contribute towards.
Council can offer dollar for dollar grants of up to $3000 for works to a Heritage Item and up to $1000 for works to properties located within a Heritage Conservation Area under Mosman Local Environmental Plan 2012.
To be eligible for funding, works must involve the repair, maintenance or reinstatement of missing items that contribute to the heritage value of the building and would be visible from the public domain.
Applications are encouraged and there are no application fees. For more details and how to apply please visit Council’s website.
