Funding and advice for Underbanks building owners

1. Building repair and restoration funds

Underbanks - Construction taking place at the Underbanks

The 'Rediscovering the Underbanks' project focuses on the repair, restoration, and improvement of a number of key buildings in the project area, using appropriate heritage construction techniques.

Your property may be eligible for a grant to:

  • replace an unsympathetic shop front based on historic research
  • carry out building repairs
  • restore lost architectural details like timber sash windows, stonework and brick repairs
  • repair slate roofs and chimney stacks
  • repair traditional gutters and cast iron rainwater pipes
  • in some cases, carry out structural repairs

Grant rates will vary depending on the type of work you want to carry out, and you will need to make a small private contribution.

We've identified a number of high and medium priority projects, and some reserve projects.

We're focusing on properties within the area that are considered to be most at risk from deterioration, although priorities may change over the lifetime of the project.

For more information, you can read our funding advice notes.
