The Dunedin City Council and the New Zealand Historic Places Trust (now Heritage New Zealand) jointly administer the Dunedin Heritage Fund to support the protection and conservation of Dunedin’s built heritage, as well as the continued use and appreciation of these places by the community.

The Heritage Fund Committee has the ability to make grants or loans to the owner or occupier of any historic place within Dunedin for the purpose of assisting that owner or occupier to manage, maintain or preserve that historic place.

The Dunedin Heritage Fund can provide incentive funding for a wide range of works. These include:

i. Essential repairs, stabilisation or core structural works.
ii. Restoration projects.
iii. Upgrades to code/regulation standards to enable contemporary use of heritage places, eg fire, earthquake, access provisions.
iv. Specific “like with like” material replacement/maintenance projects that protect the integrity of heritage buildings (eg slate or timber shingle roofing; copper gutters/downpipes; wooden joinery; stained glass; stonework; pressed tin ceilings; etc)
v. Preparation of heritage conservation plans.
vi. Emergency or protective works to protect heritage fabric.

Note: Routine maintenance will not normally be a high priority for assistance.

    Barton Building 2 Stafford St has had a full refit within the last 2 years.

    Who owns the Bartons Building? For years it was owned and occupied by G S McLauchlan Chartered Accountants. Son Stuart is the scion now, Dad long retired. Moved to the former Exchange NZ Post site. If anyone can get his hand in the cookie jar he can.

    Calvin, an update. The well known owners are pictured at this story.

    Total makeover for landmark Dunedin building
    By Nigel Benson
    Home is where the heart is for a Dunedin software company. Willis White and Co recently bought Stafford House, where it was founded in 1989, and started a comprehensive renovation of the prominent building this week. The three-storey building, on the corner of Stafford and Manse Sts, is better known as “Barton’s Building” after it served as a butcher’s shop for more than half a century.

    Boost for restoration of priory
    By Craig Borley
    A new roof for Dunedin’s Dominican Priory, considered one of New Zealand’s most important and at-risk historic buildings, is a big step closer following a $100,000 grant. Dunedin City Council’s Dunedin Heritage Fund had committed the money from its 2016-17 budget. […] The full job was expected to cost about $700,000, two-thirds of which the diocese hoped would come from the Lottery Grants Board. The Otago Community Trust had also been approached.

    ODT: DCC commits $100,000 to priory restoration
    The Dunedin City Council will top up the Dunedin Heritage Fund budget after $100,000 was committed to the restoration of Dunedin’s Dominican Priory earlier this year. The unbudgeted spending will be funded from the council’s cash surplus from the 2015-16 financial year.

    OMG, someone’s going to be spewing: “council’s cash surplus from the 2015-16 financial year” – a SURPLUS not already grabbed for professional sport!

    The outside of the Terminus Hotel (later The Gresham) echoes the appearance of the original hotel.

    Fresh start for the Terminus
    The former Gresham Hotel on the corner of Rattray and Cumberland Sts has undergone the first stage of its restoration. […] Apartments on the upper floors of the 136-year-old building will be complete in about two months. Building owner Stephen Macknight, of Dunedin, said the eight apartments featured original ceiling and brick work, and would be leased for a mix of short and long-stay accommodation.
