Historic England give grants towards the repair and conservation of listed buildings, scheduled monuments and registered parks and gardens. This includes project development actions which enable repair or improved future management.
Historic England grants under this scheme are intended to reduce the risk faced by some of the most significant historic sites in England, as shown on the Heritage at Risk Register. Historic England focus grants on those sites which are most in need of repair and where, without a grant, a project would not be able to go ahead.
This scheme was formerly called Grants for Historic Buildings, Monuments and Designed Landscapes.
Grants are primarily for urgent repairs or other work required to address risk by preventing loss of or damage to important architectural, archaeological or landscape features. The outcome of every project should be the protection of the significance of the site or to enable such protection.
We aim to secure a sustainable future for the historic environment by ensuring that work carried out with grants is:
- sympathetic to the character and significance of the building, monument, park or garden
- based on a thorough understanding of the site, including investigation where necessary
- supported by proper project planning, with adequate risk management and cost control
- completed to an appropriate standard aimed at securing a viable future for the historic property
- cared for into the future with regular maintenance
- enjoyed by the public
