How it works
The purpose of the Built Heritage Incentive Fund is to assist owners of heritage buildings to undertake conservation and seismic strengthening work where successful outcomes would be unlikely without assistance.
15% of the fund is reserved for conservation-specific work, whilst 85% is intended for work related to earthquake strengthening. Earthquake strengthening work can include:
- an initial engineering report or assessment
- the detailed design
- a grant towards actual strengthening work.
The fund recognises the importance of conserving, restoring, protecting and caring for buildings on the Wellington City District Plan Heritage List (684KB PDF) or buildings that contribute to Heritage areas (2.3MB PDF).
