Blue Mountains City Council and the NSW Government jointly funded the Blue Mountains Local Heritage Assistance Fund for 2019–2021. The Fund provided dollar for dollar grant funding of up to $2,000 to support minor conservation works to heritage properties in the Blue Mountains Local Government Area.

The Blue Mountains Local Heritage Assistance Fund recognised the importance of conserving, protecting and caring for local heritage listed buildings within the Blue Mountains.

Funding was directed towards contributory buildings; or significant buildings that contribute towards the streetscape values in Heritage Conservation Areas. 

Contributory buildings make an important contribution to the character and significance of a heritage conservation area, for example they may have been built during a key development period, or have contributory aesthetic or representative values.

With the assistance of the Fund, private heritage property owners in the Blue Mountains will undertake over $73,000 worth of conservation works during 2019-2021.

Council continues to work with the NSW Government to expand the Local Heritage Assistance Fund. Future funding opportunities will be listed on this page.
