About the Fund
Who can apply for funding?
This annual fund is open to residents and ratepayers of the Selwyn District.
What is the fund for?
The purpose of the fund is to encourage and assist owners with work required to maintain and enhance heritage buildings in the District as well as work required on protected trees.
When is the fund open?
The Selwyn Heritage Fund opens on Tuesday 14 March 2017 and closes on Tuesday 18 April 2017. Late applications will not be considered.
How much funding can I apply for?
It is a contestable fund that is distributed among successful applicants as grants (anywhere from $500-$7,500). Funds usually cover part of the work to be done with applicants making up the difference.
Payment is made upon receipt of the work being done.
Who administers the fund?
Selwyn District Council has appointed a panel made up of two Councillors, a heritage architect, two heritage advisers and a Council staff member to assess the applications and decide which projects to fund.
What kind of projects can be funded?
Previous successful applicants have received grants for:
- Fireplace restoration
- Roof and guttering repairs
- Enhancement to heritage features
- Window and glass replacement
Protected Trees are also covered by the fund.
Note: Success in gaining funding depends on the applications received year to year, not just on the type of project.
