  • Completion Date30 June 2023

Council has received a grant of $925,000 under Stage Two of the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund co-funded by the NSW State and Australian Federal Governments for the restoration of the Uralla Old Court House and adaptive reuse of the historic building.

Restoration works will include asbestos removal, roof repairs, flooring, electrical and kitchen renewals, as well as the installation of solar, fencing, and more to meet health and safety standards and enable the building to be repurposed for future use.

This is an exciting project with many social, economic, and environmental benefits for the Uralla Shire community.

There are many examples of former court houses being adaptively re-used. Some new uses for these buildings have included professional office space, commercial uses, and community museums. 

What's happening now

Council is starting its deliberative engagement process with the community to determine how the restored Court House can be most appropriately utilised into the future.

This survey is the first stage of community consultation seeking feedback on the adaptive reuse of the Uralla Old Court House.
