Apply to the heritage restoration fund

Applications are now closed.

We recognise the value of helping property owners to protect and manage significant:

  • homes
  • buildings
  • trees
  • gardens.

Appreciating the importance of our significant areas of interest, two separate grant programs are available annually:

  • the heritage restoration fund (buildings)
  • the heritage restoration fund (trees and gardens).

What the grants cover

The heritage restoration fund (buildings) provides owners of identified heritage properties to apply for a small grant. This will help with the maintenance and restoration of significant buildings and other places of interest.

The heritage restoration fund (trees and gardens) provides owners of significant trees and gardens with help either to:

  • undertake appropriate maintenance works
  • obtain a suitable water supply to provide for the longevity of these trees and gardens.

Amount of funding available

A total of $35,000 is available across these 2 funding programs. We’ll generally provide funding for conservation work on a dollar for dollar basis up to $1000 in value. Although, we may approve larger grants.

Properties eligible for funding assistance

Most owners of properties of the following heritage overlays are eligible to apply for funding through the appropriate heritage restoration fund:

  • heritage overlay of the Manningham planning scheme
  • heritage overlay (where tree controls apply)
  • vegetation protection overlay schedule 5 (significant exotic, native and indigenous vegetation).
