Council Heritage Grants now increased to $500,000 per year

Members of Auckland Council’s Environment and Community Committee were today unanimous in their support to increase the councils Regional Historic Heritage Fund, voting to increase the fund from the current $84,000 fund to an amount of up to $500,000.

The Regional Historic Heritage Fund is open to Historic Heritage Places that are scheduled in the Auckland Unitary Plan, with the fund prioritising places with demonstrated regional significance.

This is wonderful news, and is especially gratifying to heritage groups, such as the Heritage Advisory Panel, Civic Trust, the Character Coalition and others, which have long advocated for this fund to be substantially increased.
