A number of grants recommended by our Manager, Development were approved at last weeks Council Meeting.
As part of it’s intent to protect Unley’s heritage Council has a program where grants may be offered for restoration work. This has become well known and is now well accessed by residents and institutions alike seeking to defray the cost of the upkeep of a heritage listed property.
With our successful application to protect large sections of the City of Unley against the State Government’s 30 year plan more people have taken advantage of the scheme. As we enter into preparing next year’s budget this is an issue that will need to be reviewed in light of it’s popularity. Clearly extra funding is going to be required and we will need to re-examine the criteria under which grants are approved.
