As highlighted in our Community Plan we are committed to supporting the development of activities that celebrate the history, art, and culture of the Barossa and its people. One way we are doing this is through our Heritage Grants program.
If you own a state heritage property or if your property is in a state heritage area of local heritage significance as listed within the Planning and Design Code, you may be eligible to receive assistance with costs associated with maintenance conservation works, minor alterations, or additions.
Heritage Grants are provided to the owner(s) of a property that is of Local Heritage significance as listed within the Planning and Design Code.
Financial incentives may be provided for maintenance improvement works, which exceed the owner(s) funding capability.
Please read the Heritage Grant Guidelines for eligibility criteria. Any Application for funding that is outside the scope of the Guidelines will be assessed by CASC in the first instance, with its recommendation and report subsequently presented to the next Council Meeting for decision.
Applications for Heritage Grants can be submitted at any time, but will only be considered by the Community Assistance Scheme Committee on an annual basis at the November meeting of the Committee. Applications must be completed using the Heritage Grant application form
What is a heritage-listed building?
A heritage-listed building can be "heritage" for many reasons such as a place of value for reasons of history, social and cultural importance, design merit, or rarity. Heritage listings provide a list of places or objects that have such heritage significance.
If you're unsure if your place of residence or business is heritage-listed, you can check on The South Australian Heritage Places Database.
Looking to undertake work on you heritage building? You should enquire about development approval as development may be limited. Find out if you need approval today! You may also be eligible for financial assistance such as a Heritage Grant or Building Upgrade Finance.
