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.
