Major Heritage Fund

The Central Geelong Major Heritage Fund aims to support the restoration of heritage building facades, which will improve the quality and attractiveness of streets within Central Geelong.

Round One of the Major Heritage Fund closed on Friday 15 May 2015.  The Task Force determined which projects to fund at its meeting in June.  The program for each project is currently being finalised with the successful applicants, with announcements to occur as works commence. 

The Central Geelong Major Heritage Fund is an annual program, with Round Two to be held in the 2016/17 financial year. 

Examples of projects which would be considered for funding:

  • reinstatement or restoration of verandahs, awnings or balconies

  • repainting of facades

  • restoration of building names and original signage

  • restoration and repointing of brickwork or stonework

  • repair of rooves, chimneys, gables and parapets and

  • restoration and/or replacement of windows

We encourage potential applicants to contact Council’s statutory planning department to identify whether the works proposed require a
planning permit, well in advance of Round Two of the Major Heritage Fund opening for applications.
