Thinking Buildings Can Help Secure Grant Funding For Historic Farm Buildings

A heads up for farm and landowners with historic farm buildings.

A £2 million grant scheme is being rolled out this year in five national parks, offering funding for land managers to restore their historic farm buildings, the government has announced. The Historic Building Restoration Grant is being piloted in Dartmoor, Lake District, Northumberland, Peak District, and Yorkshire Dales National Parks.

The scheme aims to help save iconic historic farm buildings in the English National Parks from falling out of use. Owners of these buildings can apply for a grant, which offers 80 percent towards restoration costs.

The scheme aims to replace roofs, weatherproof the exterior, or other restoration works, which enable the building to be used again for farming purposes.

Please do contact us if you wish to discuss how Thinking Buildings can help in securing the funding and delivering the works packages in the Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales through our Derby City office.
