A loan scheme for the refurbishment of heritage properties in Tasmania will be introduced if the Liberals are re-elected come March 3.
Premier Will Hodgman said the state’s heritage properties were “a key reason” for Tasmania’s tourism boom.
“It is this combination of history, heritage and hospitality that our visitors increasingly seek out, and that … sets us apart from other states,” he said.
That is why the Liberals intend to establish a $10 million heritage renewal loans scheme, which would be designed to assist people who own, live or work in heritage properties to conserve and revitalise them.
The scheme would make available low interest loans ranging from $50,000 to $1.5 million.
“This scheme will help take our visitor economy to the next level,” Mr Hodgman said.
