THREE heritage places in the eastern suburbs have received funds from the State Government towards revitalisation and conservation works.

Success Hill Lodge in Bassendean was granted $7703 while the Midland Railway Workshops was given $100,000 and Wesley Church and Manse in Guildford ($42,345) also received funding.

The places were among 22 others that received a share of $1.22 million in funding under the 2018-19 Heritage Grants Program.

The program, overseen by the Heritage Council of Western Australia, offers funding of up to $100,000 to help private owners conserve and revitalise their properties.

Heritage Minister David Templeman said the funding, when combined with owner contributions, would generate about $3.4 million in conservation in WA.

“This funding will allow private owners to conserve and revitalise 11 regional and 11 metropolitan state-registered heritage properties, protecting some of our State’s most valuable heritage assets and stimulating heritage tourism,” he said.
