Grant Eligibility

Who can Apply for Funding?

The TH Project aims to carry out repair and restoration works to eligible properties within the TH Boundary, which is within the blue line shown on the map below. Property owners and tenants in the TH Boundary are eligible for grant funding for eligible works, subject to conditions.

The TH Project includes three levels of priority; High, Medium and Reserve.

Grant funding is limited and priority will be offered to High and Medium projects firstly. Please contact the TH Officer to discuss whether your property is eligible for funding.


To apply for grant funding you must either:

Own the property – In order to apply for grant you must be able to provide proof of ownership.

Lease the property (long-term lease) – If you have a lease without a break clause that exceeds the length of the grant conditions (10 years from the date of the scheme completion) you are eligible to apply for grant funding with consent from the landlord.

Lease the property (short-term lease) – If your lease is less than 10 years you may still be eligible for grant funding. This would require consent from the landlord who must join the Grant Application and agree to be bound by the grant conditions if a grant is awarded.



A fixed grant rate of 75% is available against all eligible expenditure toward eligible buildings.
