The City’s Condition Rewards Scheme offers a range of payments to owners of places listed on the City of Gosnells Heritage Survey (formerly known as a Heritage Inventory) based on the condition score of the heritage property. The condition score reflects the cumulative effects of management and environmental events.
Heritage properties need to be maintained at (or above) the level listed in the Heritage Survey 2016 in order to be eligible for the reward payment. If the property is badly maintained and its condition score drops, the level of payment decreases accordingly. The assessment and scoring of each place’s condition was originally undertaken as part of the review of the Heritage Survey 2016. Applicants must fill out a declaration form (see below) and spot checks may be conducted.
The rewards offered, based on the property’s condition, are as follows:
- Condition Score of Good $400
- Condition Score of Fair $200.
Significant trees listed in the Heritage Survey are included in the same Scheme with owners rewarded as below:
- Condition Score of Good $60
- Condition Score of Fair $30.
The current round of rewards closes on 14 April 2022. More information is available by contacting the City’s Coordinator Heritage on 9391 6011 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
