Dunedin Heritage Fund Allocated
Dunedin (Tuesday, 7 December 2010) - The September 2010 Dunedin Heritage Fund grants round has been completed. These grants enable the Dunedin City Council to recognise the importance of the city’s heritage to its future.
Grants and loans have been allocated to six groups and organisations for projects including repairs to dry stone walls, conservation plans and restorations of various structural elements.
The recipients were:
Springfield $18,000
Cargill’s Castle $11,400
Dunedin Gasworks Museum Trust $20,000
Corstorphine House $20,000
Dunedin Prison Charitable Trust $20,000
1075 George Street $5,000
TOTAL $94,400
The next funding round closes at 5.00pm on Friday 25 March 2011 and application forms are available from DCC Customer Services Centres.
In another heritage initiative, the DCC’s recent free workshop for heritage building owners, attracted more than 65 people and feedback has so far indicated that attendees found it very useful.
The DCC’s Policy Planner (Heritage), Glen Hazelton, says, “Based on the extremely positive response we had to this first workshop, we will look at running more. We will discuss with those who attended which aspects of the workshop they found most useful and structure the next one accordingly.”
