New grants to repair historic buildings in Renfrewshire villages

🏛️ Lomond Building Consultants Can Help Secure Maintenance Grants

Applications to the Maintenance Planning grant are open until 29 January 2024 while the Small and Standard Repair grants close on 25 March 2024.

Exciting news for the owners of historic buildings in Renfrewshire villages! Renfrewshire Council has recently launched the Historic Buildings in Villages Grants initiative, earmarking a substantial £250,000 to support the maintenance and repair of buildings constructed before 1945 to conservation and heritage standards.

Lomond Building Consultants is pleased to inform you that we are well-equipped to assist you in navigating the application process for these grants. Our team of experts can guide you through the requirements and ensure that your proposal aligns with the criteria set forth by the grant program.

The grants are structured to address various needs:

  1. Maintenance Planning Grants: Covering 80% of eligible costs up to £1,500, these grants support property owners in commissioning a conservation-accredited advisor to survey their building and prepare a costed maintenance plan. Applications for Maintenance Planning Grants are open until 29 January 2024.
  2. Small Repairs Grant: Covering up to 60% of eligible costs for repairs ranging from £3,000 to £8,000, this grant is tailored for smaller-scale restoration projects. The application window for Small Repairs Grants extends until 25 March 2024.
  3. Standard Repairs Grant: For more extensive repairs exceeding £8,000, this grant provides up to 50% of eligible costs, with a maximum award of £25,000. Similar to Small Repairs Grants, applications for Standard Repairs Grants close on 25 March 2024.

Councillor Andy Steel, convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Economy and Regeneration Policy Board, emphasizes the importance of preserving these historic structures. He notes, “Our grant scheme will support individual and shared owners to consider and prioritize the maintenance needed and help towards the repair costs to preserve them.”

At Lomond Building Consultants, we understand the unique challenges posed by historic buildings and can assist you in not only securing the grants but also in executing the proposed works to the highest standards.
