“It is important that we work together to ensure that they are maintained for the future and that the full potential they hold for the present is realised.

“The fund has been designed to allow swift processing of applications to deliver support quickly to where it is needed.

 

 

“The focus on roofs reflects an increase in the number of buildings on the Heritage at Risk register over recent years.

“In many cases, roof problems have been identified as the main cause of decay.

“I would encourage eligible building owners to apply by the deadline of 21 June 2021,” she added.

All applications will be marked relative to clear criteria and those scoring highest will be supported, subject to their compliance with the scheme.

 

 

Further information on how to apply is available online.
