Working Heritage is pleased to announce that Jack’s Magazine is the successful recipient of Round 6 of the Living Heritage Program. The grant of $163,000 has been generously provided by the Victorian Government and will be used to carry out a wide range of conservation works across five of the buildings at the property.
The works will include repairs to timber shutters and windows, replacing and repairing gutters and downpipes; refixing slate roof tiles, works to improve water drainage, repairs to bargeboards and a number of other conservation measures.
Onsite works will occur from October 2021 to February 2022 and will be conducted by heritage specialists McCorkell Constructions.
These measures are designed to protect the important industrial significance of the site and help facilitate future public enjoyment of the property.
Further information about the project is available from the Heritage Victoria website:
The community survey has now closed.
The purpose of the survey is to canvas Beaufort community opinion on the future use and improvement of the Beaufort Court House site.
The data is currently being collated and will help Working Heritage prepare a strategic visionfor this valued community site.
Beaufort Court House - located at 9 Livingstone Street, Beaufort - is the home of the Beaufort Historical Society, which has been operating at the location for almost 40 years.
Friday 25 June 2021 saw the announcement that confirmed Working Heritage as the successful applicant in the DELWP-run EOI on the future management and adaptation of the former Kyneton Primary School
As a Primary School, this site had served the community of Kyneton for 161 years. It will soon take on a new role but one thing that won’t change is that the buildings and grounds will remain in public hands to be repurposed for the benefit of the Kyneton and district community.
Working Heritage will be working in partnership with Creative Victoria to deliver the project that will see the site's adapation to a new role both as a creative industry hub and a community hub.
