The conservation of heritage in the Davidson electorate is being boosted with a $25,000 Local Government Heritage Grant, part of the NSW Heritage Grants program.
Member for Davidson, Jonathan O’Dea, said the NSW Government funding will support Ku-ring-gai council to prepare a heritage study.
“This will give our community the opportunity to celebrate and conserve the rich heritage of iconic North Shore garden suburbs in the Ku-ring-gai Local Government Area,” Mr O’Dea said.
“It’s fantastic to see the Davidson Electorate receive this grant funding and ensure our local heritage sites are preserved for future generations” he said.
The heritage study project will be rolled out and delivered to the community from mid-2023.
Minister for Heritage James Griffin said 86 councils across NSW are receiving funding through the Local Government Heritage Grant category, which is part of a larger $5 million NSW Heritage Grants program.
“These grants are all about helping local councils identify, protect and celebrate the meaningful stories and places that enrich their communities,” Mr Griffin said.
“Each of the 86 successful councils are being given $25,000 to deliver projects in their area, whether it be for running a heritage grants program, funding a heritage advisor, promoting heritage in their area, or training staff and the community.
“This is the 44th year of the NSW Heritage Grants program, which have helped deliver hundreds of fantastic heritage renewal projects around the State.”
