Local council assistance for heritage projects
Free heritage advice
Your local council is your first source of information on heritage in your local area.
A number of councils have officers who are knowledgeable about heritage matters and who may be able to assist you. To make use of these services, phone the council concerned and ask for the officer who normally deals with heritage matters.
Many councils in NSW also have part-time heritage advisors whose duties normally include giving free advice to owners of heritage items. Phone the council concerned to inquire about discussing your project with the heritage advisor.
Funding from your local council
Many local councils in NSW provide small grants to assist heritage projects. Check with your council to see if it offers grants through its local heritage fund: ask for the officer who normally deals with heritage matters.
