Heritage Zone Funding Boost for England's High Streets

| Return|

In Autumn 2018, the Chancellor announced a new Future High Streets Fund, with £675m being allocated to support the renewal and reshaping of town centres and high streets. As part of that fund, £44m has been allocated to Historic England for work to support historic high streets.

The new High Streets Heritage Action Zones (HSHAZ) programme is administered by Historic England on behalf of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

The HSHAZ programme will support sustainable economic and cultural growth on and around high streets and restore and enhance local historic character, making the high street an attractive, engaging and vibrant place for people to live, work and play. HSHAZ will do this through physical works to buildings, including repair, reinstatement of lost features and conversion to new uses including residential.

Applications will be accepted from not-for-profit organisations (e.g. local authorities, charitable trusts, or other public sector organisations) and partnerships led by not-for-profit organisations who can demonstrate capacity to deliver.

Applicants can apply for a grant of between £250,000 and £2 million, to set up a four-year partnership beginning April 2020.

There is a two phase selection process.

  • Stage One: Expression of Interest

  • Stage Two: Programme Design

Expressions of Interest must be submitted by the deadline of 12 July 2019.
