Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Heritage Grants are available to owners of heritage places to assist with carrying out heritage conservation projects.

The grants aim to help owners of heritage places in maintaining and preserving their property.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor Bryan Payne said at the Shire we encourage heritage conservation projects and celebrate heritage throughout the Mornington Peninsula.

“It is important to support efforts that assist in the preservation of our local heritage and the Shire is pleased to offer this grant program to our community”.

Properties covered by a Heritage Overlay or contribute significantly to heritage precincts under the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme, are eligible for consideration for a grant.

Individual grants usually range from $1,000 to $2,500 but exceptions to this range may be made in special circumstances. 

Council makes the grants on a contributory basis –  no grant will exceed 50% of the total value of any works.

Applications close 5pm, Monday 24 December 2018.

Applicants will be notified of the grant outcome before the end of January 2019.
