Discretionary funding is available to property owners and tenants for external repairs and reinstatement of the architectural features of their historic buildings.
Key buildings within the CARS area are targeted by a repairs programme with grant funding over £25,000, and these are identified as Priority Projects. Maximum grant funding available for a priority project will be set by the Council on a project by project basis.
All other properties within the CARS area are eligible for Small Grants for up to 80% towards the eligible cost of works and up to £25,000 per project.
Shopfront Improvement Grants within CARS Shopfront Improvement Area are available for up to 80% towards eligible costs of works and up to £25,000 per project.
Shopfront Improvement Grants outside the CARS area but within NAC Shopfront Improvement Area are available for up to 80% toward eligible costs of works and up to £20,000 per project.
Training and heritage activities
Opportunities for upskilling and training will be made available to local contractors to improve their traditional building skills and knowledge about traditional materials and building methods.
A programme of heritage-led activities will be delivered through free public events and workshops to create opportunities for the local community and visitors to learn about and enjoy Millport’s history and built heritage. A number of activities and projects are included in the programme, however, some funding may still be available for additional projects. Please enquire with the project officer if you believe your project may contribute to the programme.
We’ll post the information on current activities here, and we’ll also tweet about them under #MillportCARS.
