It’s important we take care of the towns and communities we live in and love, which is why the Nationals in Government are proud to help preserve our local heritage.

NSW Nationals Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has been part of this effort, recently announcing a $23,000 grant to help preserve Inverell’s historic buildings.

Inverell Shire Council received the funding to continue its small heritage grants program and to subsidise the cost of an independent heritage advisor for the owners of local heritage buildings.

“It’s incredibly important that prominent buildings in Inverell’s CBD like the Inverell Club and Oxford Hotel are preserved for future generations,” Mr Marshall said. “Last year the NSW Government provided heritage funding to help with the restoration of the former Sisters of Mercy convent building, which is being returned to its grand old glory days but in a modern context.”

“Looking after our heritage is everyone’s responsibility and I commend Inverell Shire Council for the work it’s doing in supporting property owners to preserve the town’s identity.”

 

Those people interested in accessing this latest funding to undertake work or engage the services of a heritage advisor should get in contact with Inverell Shire Council.
