Temora Shire Heritage Committee is a volunteer group which has accepted the challenge of recording the shire’s rich history, and keeping it alive for future generations.
Meeting monthly, the committee deals with all heritage-related issues, and oversees the running of important initiatives conducted by the Council to ensure the ideal restoration and maintenance of heritage infrastructure.
The Local Heritage Assistance Fund distributes $15,000 throughout the shire each year.
The aim of the project is to encourage as much positive work on heritage items in the area as possible. In the process, it is hoped that this will engender greater interest and concern for conservation for all other heritage items within the Council’s area.
An application form can guide interested parties through the process of applying for the fund.
Council’s Heritage Advisory Service involves monthly visits from Heritage Adviser David Scobie, who looks at issues not only relating to heritage, but also architecture and streetscapes.
Monthly bookings for the free advisory sessions can be made with Nicole Steinhardt on (02) 6980 1101.
Minutes from the Heritage Committee meetings can also be found in the Director of Environmental Services Report in the Information Paper section of the Temora Shire Council Meeting Minutes.
