HERS funding

  • Comment

The Heritage Economic Regeneration Scheme is a grants programme first announced in November 1998, which is now English Heritage's vehicle for conservation-led, area-based regeneration.

HERS concentrates on neighbourhood businesses, high streets and corner shops, where area-based assistance with building repairs and enhancement will help tip the balance in favour of continued local employment, provide new homes and encourage inward investment.

A fifth year of new HERS schemes started on 1 April.

Eligible works are repairs to the structure and external fabric, reinstatement of architectural features and environmental enhancements. As well as supporting current occupiers, projects encourage building reuse and the reoccupation of upper floors over shops.Listed buildings at risk within HERS areas are high-priority targets. Local authority investment in run-down public buildings is also encouraged.
