High Street Heritage Action Zones – Historic England

In May 2019, Historic England launched a new £44 million fund which will allow them to work with partners to find new ways to champion and revive historic high streets through the High Streets Heritage Action Zones scheme.

Local authorities can apply to the scheme, which will give councils, businesses and community groups access to expert advice and investment to bring historic buildings back into use and support historic high streets to adapt to the challenges they face.

This aims to provide a four-year programme of physical improvements, community engagement and cultural activities to regenerate England’s struggling historic high streets and town centres around the country.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 12 July 2019.
