The Built Heritage Incentive Fund helps conserve, restore, protect, and care for Wellington's heritage-listed buildings and objects. It is one of a range of Council initiatives to increase earthquake safety in Wellington. The next round of applications is open now and closes on 7 July 2015.
Councillor Iona Pannett, the Council’s Buildings Portfolio Leader, says, “Continued applications from owners of heritage buildings for earthquake strengthening purposes is fantastic to see; owners are taking their responsibilities seriously, which is good for the buildings themselves and public safety in Wellington”.
