The Borough Council has an established Historic Building Grant Fund, which seeks to fund proposals which preserve and enhance the heritage of the Borough.
At present a 20 per cent grant is given towards a listed building, a 10 per cent grant for an architecturally or historically important building within a conservation area or buildings which are included on the Register of Locally Important Buildings and Structures and a 5 per cent grant for other architecturally or historically significant building.
The Borough Council’s resources for funding heritage works are limited and, therefore, there is a current maximum grant of £5,000.
Potential applicants for financial assistance through the Historic Building Grant are encouraged to discuss their draft proposals with the Borough Council’s Conservation Officer.
