This page describes Porirua City Council's vision for heritage management involves working in partnership with landowners and the community to achieve positive outcomes for heritage.
One of the ways that Council seeks to do this is through providing assistance to heritage site owners. There are two ways that Council can assist heritage projects.
Council is able to make small contributions towards some of the costs associated with heritage features. This may be in the form of paying for some professional advice, paying consent fees, or meeting some of the additional costs of ensuring that changes to a heritage feature are appropriate to its heritage values.
If you would like information about what assistance is available through heritage grants, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Council on (04) 237 5089.
From time to time, Council is able to provide significant amounts of funding to individual heritage projects through its long term planning. Such projects require a significant amount of planning and information, as well as community benefit, to be considered as an individual project by the Long Term Plan.
The Porirua Hospital Museum and Taylor Stace Cottage are examples of such projects.
If you would like information about such projects, please contact email@example.com or call Council on 04 237 5089.
The New Zealand Historic Places Trust has information about funding available to the owners of heritage features.
