The disbursements from the Dunedin Heritage Fund, shown in a report being tabled at today’s meeting of the DCC’s planning and environment subcommittee, were spread across 44 different projects.
The grants covered 11.6% of total project funds on average, which meant they played a part in facilitating over $6.5million in investment into heritage projects in the city.
Funds allocated ranged from $60,000 to fund emergency window repair and restoration at St Dominic’s Priory to $1000 for the replacement of guttering and installation of a storm drain at Middlemarch Museum.
Other project work included earthquake-strengthening work, retrofitting double glazing to timber heritage windows and roof replacements and repairs.
Another $40,000 went to the Middlemarch Museum to build a shelter for the Platypus, a 19th-century prototype gold mining submarine.
The fund is a joint venture between DCC and Heritage New Zealand.
It is funded and administered by DCC, and both parties provide heritage advice when considering applicants.
