New Traditional Building Repair Grant 2021-2022: reopening – 1 June 2021
Who can apply?
Grants are available for traditional properties within the Stirling City boundary and in Bridge of Allan which are members of the Traditional Buildings Health Check.
What repairs are eligbile?
This is a Small Grant scheme designed to assist with priority external fabric repairs identified in your TBHC Inspection Report.
- Your building must be a current member of the Traditional Buildings Health Check. You will need to have a minimum of 3 months left of your membership at the time of your grant payment.
- You will need to have had an inspection carried out by our team to assess the condition of your property.
- The proposed works will be identified in the inspection report as Priority 1 and 2
Grant funding is for traditional repairs such as slating, leadwork, repair of timber sash and case windows, cast iron guttering repairs and masonry repointing. We expect the highest standards of repairs using traditional materials and techniques.
How much is the grant?
The grant will be set at 50% of eligible works up to a maximum grant per building per year of £15,000. So, for example, on a building in shared ownership, that is £15,000 in total for any common repairs which would be divided between TBHC members. There is a minimum grant of £2,000 so eligible works must exceed £4,000.
Who decides how grants are awarded?
The grants are decided by our panel of Trustees on a regular basis. Applicants will be informed of deadlines. Funding is finite and grants are offered on a first come, first served basis.
How do I apply?
Please note that due to coronavirus, staff are working at home for much of the time, but we will get back to you as soon as we can if you send us an email with your contact details.
