Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - News -

Ap­pli­ca­tions are now open for the 2020/21 round of Mur­ray River Coun­cil’s Lo­cal Her­itage Fund.

Grant ap­pli­ca­tions are open to in­di­vid­u­als and groups look­ing to un­der­take her­itage projects that will help con­serve lo­cal items of sig­nif­i­cance.

Mayor Chris Bilkey en­cour­aged or­gan­i­sa­tions with an in­ter­est in pro­tect­ing and cel­e­brat­ing lo­cal her­itage to ap­ply.

‘‘The fund­ing is avail­able to sup­port con­ser­va­tion works and projects that pro­vide sus­tain­able long term her­itage ben­e­fits to Mur­ray River Coun­cil,’’ he said.

‘‘The lo­cal area is blessed to have a di­verse range of lo­cal her­itage — rang­ing from small arte­facts through to build­ings and struc­tures that are the legacy of pi­o­neers past — so I’d en­cour­age in­ter­ested ap­pli­cants to look at the guide­lines and see if their project might fit the cri­te­ria.’’

Pri­or­i­ties un­der the pro­gram in­clude restora­tion or preser­va­tion projects com­pris­ing paint­ing in pe­riod colours, re­pair and restora­tion of her­itage fea­tures, the restora­tion of pe­riod front fences or other small con­ser­va­tion ini­tia­tives.

Guide­lines and the on­line ap­pli­ca­tion can be viewed at www.mur­rayriver.nsw.gov.au/ com­mu­nity/grants/coun­cil-grant. Ap­pli­ca­tions close Au­gust 24.
