Since 2012, our core funding concentrated on the City Centre where grant funding supports economic regeneration and tackled issues such as vacancy. The Trust worked with local owners on its King Street Funding Initiative, aimed at repair and enhancement of this key historic street at the traditional commercial heart of Stirling.
The Trust also assisted Historic Environment Scotland in promoting better maintenance and appropriate repair of traditional buildings through the innovative pilot project the Traditional Buildings Health Check. Members of this scheme had the opportunity to apply for the Traditional Buildings Repair grant.
Grant funding was also made available to deliver outreach projects including the John Allan celebration, leaflet and book including working with local primary school pupils and the King Street exhibition.
