The Heritage fund

Next Funding Round July 2018

Council offers an annual $100,000 Heritage Fund to help owners of listed heritage buildings and archaeological sites.   The fund is to incentivise the protection, conservation, restoration and use of both built heritage and archaeological sites within Hamilton.

Applications are sought in July of each financial year and all works need to be completed and invoices presented to Council for payment before 30 June of that same financial year.

The Heritage Fund is for projects on privately-owned heritage listed items in Schedule 8A or on archaeological sites listed in Schedule 8B of the District Plan. 

During the first round in 2016/17 thirteen privately-owned heritage buildings were assisted through the fund including the development of heritage conservation plans, building assessment reports, through to the restoration and repair of leadlight windows, porches and decorative plaster works and borer treatment. ​​

It is also a result of actions set out in the Hamilton Heritage Plan.
