The City of Canterbury Bankstown remains committed to protecting heritage-listed items through a number of measures, including an expanded Heritage Grant Fund.
Administrator Richard Colley said the Bankstown Heritage Grant Fund is being expanded to include Canterbury.
"Preserving heritage-listed properties remains a priority for Council, that’s why we have also doubled the fund allocation to $60,000," Mr Colley said.
"We recognise that heritage items need special care and attention to maintain their heritage value."
The larger investment has been made possible through the absorption of the previous rate reduction offered to heritage-listed properties in the former Canterbury Council area.
Council’s decision comes off the back of a further 29 properties in Hurlstone Park being added to its list of heritage items, taking the total number to 234 across Canterbury-Bankstown.
The successful Heritage Advisory Service, previously only available to Canterbury residents, is also now available to Bankstown residents.
"This service primarily provides important information on what residents and businesses can and can’t do when it comes to changing or preserving their heritage-protected property," Mr Colley said.
"On top of that, development application fees have, in some circumstances, been reduced for residents living in heritage properties."
