Mornington Peninsula Shire funds a small grants program each year, to assist owners of heritage places to carry out heritage conservation projects. Individual grants usually range from $1,000 to $2,500 but exceptions may be made in special circumstances. Council makes the grants on a 50 / 50 funding basis; therefore, generally, any grant will not exceed 50 per cent of the total value of any works.
Eligible properties are those covered by an individual Heritage Overlay, or that are significant or contributory to heritage precincts, under the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme.
For free advice on conservation methods, or for any other questions regarding the grants scheme, contact the Shire’s Strategic Planning Team on: 5950 1961.
