HERITAGE ADVISORY COUNCIL TWELFTH ANNUAL REPORT 2002-03 20 Owners of declared heritage places who pay rates are eligible to receive a rebate. This incentive is managed administratively as a reimbursement of rates paid to municipalities. Owners of places used for residential purposes are reimbursed 75% of their rates whilst owners of commercial places are reimbursed 25% of their rates. Free expert and specialist services are available to owners of declared heritage places regarding heritage conservation issues. Heritage conservation architects have been retained in Darwin and Alice Springs in order to provide Territory-wide coverage. In the last year owners of twenty-four declared heritage places accessed this service. Detailed conservation advice was also provided by staff to owners of more than twelve declared and proposed heritage places, with this advice being reported to Council. The Northern Territory Heritage Grant Program The Northern Territory Heritage Grant Program (NTHGP) remains the only substantial heritage grant program in the Territory. Applications are received and assessed by the Heritage Advisory Council, which then forwards a recommended program to the Minister for his consideration. The successful projects for the 2002-03 round are listed in Table 3 below. A total of 15 projects were funded to a value of $195,392. $4,608 was allocated to miscellaneous conservation work bringing the total expenditure for 2002-03 to $200,000.
