If you own a heritage property on the Mornington Peninsula, you could be eligible for a grant to help you maintain and preserve it.
Mornington Peninsula Shire’s heritage grants are available to help you carry out heritage conservation projects. The grants usually range from $1000 to $2500, but exceptions may be made in special circumstances. Grants are made on a contributory basis and will not exceed half the cost of any work.
Properties covered by individual heritage overlays or places contributory to heritage precincts under the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme are eligible for consideration for a grant.
Applications close on Friday, March 26, at 5pm, and applicants will get a pre-approval notification shortly after the application is submitted. Applicants need to be sure the work will be finished by May 30 this year so the grants can be paid by June 30; allocated funds will not be carried through to the next financial year.
