On the 16 September WCC’s Strategy and Policy committee will consider a report seeking approval for the allocation of grants to applicants in the July 2010 round of the Built Heritage Incentive Fund (BHIF).

This round proposes grants to nine applicants. Three of the properties are within Thorndon. If approved these three will receive funding summing $32,098. The total yearly fund is $200,000. This is the first of three bidding rounds for the 2010/11 financial year.

The latest report recommends that a 4th application for a Thorndon residence be declined because it is not included on the District Plan Heritage List and is not in a Heritage Area.
