Strengthening Palmy Heritage

* indicates a required field.

Strengthening Palmy Heritage is a grant fund to support the investment in scheduled heritage and street character buildings which require structural upgrade. Grant funding is targeted to structural works (and the associated fire safety and accessibility upgrades) on earthquake-prone buildings.  

The fund is available for:

  • technical advice and investigation,
  • reports and plans,
  • resource and building consent fees, and
  • physical works.  

There are two key criteria for this fund:

  1. The fund is only available for projects on heritage buildings that are scheduled in the District Plan, or eligible street character buildings, and
  2. Crown and government owned buildings and sites are ineligible for funding.

Please discuss your project with us before making an application. Contact Victoria Edmonds on 06 356 8199 or email heritagefund@pncc.govt.nz.
