Historic Environment Scotland - Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme
Scottish communities are set to benefit from a £10 million investment under Historic Environment Scotland’s (HES) flagship conservation and regeneration funding programme.
This scheme provides financial help for conservation area based regeneration and conservation initiatives. Funding is provided over a five-year period to support the set-up of a Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS). A CARS can be used to fund:
a repairs programme for priority projects;
a small grants scheme – e.g. for homeowners or retailers;
community engagement through training opportunities in traditional skills and through education programmes;
training opportunities for traditional craftspeople;
public realm conservation and restoration and administration costs, including for the appointment of a dedicated project officer.
