Calling all artists!
The next stage of the Warracknabeal Court House Reactivation Project is upon us.
A community survey on the Skipton Historic Reserve (incorporating the former Skipton Court House and former Police Residence) will be opening in early 2022.
The purpose of the survey is to canvas the Skipton and district community's opinion on the future use and improvement of the Skipton Historic Reserve site.
The data is currently being collated and will help Working Heritage prepare a strategic visionfor this valued community site.
Skipton Court House - located at 33 Montgomery Street, Skipton - is the home of the Skipton and District Historical Society, which has been operating at the location for many years.
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.
