Launch of North Shore Heritage Trust

Launch of North Shore Heritage Trust

Part of its ongoing commitment to protect and support local heritage, North Shore City Council will next week launch the North Shore Heritage Trust.

The Trust, to be launched in Devonport on Wednesday night (November 13), aims to protect and enhance the heritage of North Shore City, while raising public awareness and appreciation of local heritage.

The Trust will administer a new fund established to provide one-off grants of up to $5,000 towards the stabilisation, repair or restoration of heritage homes in North Shore City, or the preparation of conservation plans and site protection.

North Shore City Council will contribute $150,000 spread over the next three years, while Telecom New Zealand is supplying a total of $45,000, also over three years. Other supporters will be sought by the Trust.

Seven people, representing a cross-section of community interest and experience, have been appointed to the North Shore Heritage Trust.

The trustees are: Jeremy Salmond – architect specialising in the conservation of historic buildings Genevieve Becroft – arts advisor, past chair of Lake House Trust and former North Shore City councillor James Dowell - company director Mark O’Donnell – general manager Paddy Stafford-Bush – deputy chair of the Auckland Conservation Board and a former chair of the Devonport Community Board Robert Latimer – education consultant Tony Holman – environmentalist, heritage advocate and North Shore City councillor, currently chair of the city’s strategy and finance committee.

North Shore City’s representative on the Trust, Tony Holman, says the Trust will be an influential body in determining future heritage initiatives.

“I’m delighted to be part of the new Trust, and as a Trustee I look forward to ensuring the heritage character of North Shore City is retained for the benefit of future residents and visitors,” says Councillor Holman, a lifelong North Shore resident himself.

“It is a tremendous step forward to now have the North Shore Heritage Trust promoting and preserving our heritage buildings and historic places.”
