The Historic Building Restoration Grant scheme opened for applications on 29 March 2018. The scheme is being piloted in the Dartmoor, Lake District, Northumberland, Peak District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks.
Owners of qualifying historic farm buildings in the pilot areas can apply for a grant of 80% towards the cost of building restoration works such as roofing, weatherproofing and structural works. Specialist surveys and project management work are also eligible for funding.
The grant is supported by an implementation plan so that applicants can work with National Park advisors on developing a management plan to deliver the restoration of their buildings. This part of the scheme is 100% funded so applicants can seek the advice they need to develop their applications and secure funding for their projects.
Applications must be submitted before 31 January 2019 and, once approved, agreement holders will have two years to complete the works.
