The cost of repairing a neglected historic building is often so high that restoration simply isn’t commercially viable. Heritage Enterprise makes such schemes possible by funding some of the repair costs with grants of £100,000 to £5million.
Historic buildings can attract thriving businesses and boost economic growth. And yet many lie vacant and derelict because of the high costs involved in rescuing them.
Heritage Enterprise can help communities repair derelict historic places, giving them productive new uses. By funding the repair costs and making these buildings commercially viable, we hope to breathe new life into vacant sites. Not-for-profit organisations work with private partners to generate economic growth, and create jobs and opportunities in those places that need it the most.
