Posted: 14 Aug 2018
Grants awarded include Pulpit Hill Precinct (including Explorers Tree) Interpretation Project.
Blue Mountains region has been the successful recipient of four key heritage grants in the NSW Government ‘Heritage Near Me Activation Grants’ announced yesterday.

Blue Mountains based Member of the Legislative Council Shayne Mallard MP in announcing the grants said the grants represented investment by the Berejiklian Liberal government in the regions unique heritage.

“The four grants valued at $375,000 are for projects including conservation of the Explorers Tree at Katoomba, the Woodford Reserve at Woodford, restoration of old Mt Wilson Public School and opening the heritage building on Parke St Katoomba all represent important elements of the local heritage that can now be preserved for future generations.”

The projects are four of 33 projects across NSW that will share $2.67 million in grants to provide for the upgrade, expansion, restoration or conservation of locally listed heritage items in towns and suburbs across NSW.

Mr Mallard said the Heritage Near Me Activation Grants target heritage items that are accessible to the public.

“I’m pleased to be able to support the crucial role played by heritage owners and managers, and congratulate the applicants on their innovation in bringing our local heritage to life.

“By encouraging the community to use and enjoy our heritage places we ensure they are valued and protected for future generations,” he said.

This year marks the third round of Heritage Near Me Activation Grants. Over the three years, a total of $8 million has been awarded to support 107 local heritage projects across the state.
