Built Heritage Incentive and Resilience Fund

The current Built Heritage Incentive Fund is set at $450,000 per annum and geared towards helping owners to earthquake strengthen and maintain their heritage buildings.

We are proposing to increase funding to $1 million per year through two separate funds to capture a broader range of earthquake resilience projects. We propose that the funding be allocated and focused on the following areas:

  • $500,000 towards supporting building owners meet associated costs relating to earthquake-prone heritage buildings and heritage conservation projects eg obtaining heritage advice.
  • $500,000 towards supporting building owners meet associated costs relating to earthquake-strengthening their buildings eg engineering assessments, traffic management plans for construction etc.

The funding criteria for both funds will be developed in detail in the coming months and reported to committee for decision in August 2019. It is anticipated that funding will be directed towards buildings where successful heritage and resilience outcomes would be unlikely without assistance.
