BATHURST Regional Council has received a grant of $20,000 to document the condition of the city's historic lamp standards and prepare for their repair.
The $20,000 is from a NSW Government Heritage Grant.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said there are 105 lamp standards in the Bathurst CBD, dating back to the 1930s.
"This grant will initiate the start of the Bathurst Street and Park Lamps Condition Assessment and Management Plan," he said.
"The aim of the project is to produce a heritage management document to assess the current condition of the Bathurst street and park heritage lamp standards and provide a detailed and prioritised repair schedule and maintenance plan for their ongoing upkeep and repair.
"These old lamp standards are a feature of Bathurst, but they are almost 90 years old and it's time to do some serious planning to ensure they are here for generations to come."
He said $5.5 million will be awarded to more than 220 projects statewide in the 2021-23 grants.
