Property and business owners in Murwillumbah have until this Friday, 24 July, to apply for grants through the Demonstration Pilot Project for the Murwillumbah Main Street Commercial and Heritage Conservation Area.

The grants are available to help improve and invigorate the overall presentation of the town’s commercial precinct, while acknowledging and protecting the significance of the conservation area.

A number of property and business owners attended a successful Trades Day held recently as part of the pilot project, to provide interested people with information and advice.

It introduced property and business owners to relevant tradespeople and heritage and best practice maintenance information, to assist with suitable grant applications.

Grants will not be offered if the work has taken place before the grant is offered or approved.

Grant guidelines, application forms and further information can be downloaded from www.tweed.nsw.gov.au/Lookup, by visiting Tweed Shire Council’s customer service counter at the Murwillumbah Civic Centre in Tumbulgum Road or by phoning the Strategic Planning and Urban Design unit on 02 6670 2503.
