Derby Townscape Heritage Initiative FAQs

  • Can grants be used for routine maintenance or redecoration?

    Grants are not available for routine maintenance and redecoration.

  • Can I undertake eligible and non-eligible works in the same programme of work?

    Yes you can, but the costs must be separately identified.

  • Are the grants means tested?

    Grants are not means tested, they are discretionary and there is no automatic entitlement. All grants must be applied for and will be appraised in line with the guidance at the time of submission.

  • I’ve previously been successful for a Heritage Lottery Fund grant/loan – can I still apply?

    If you have previously received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, you will not be eligible for a Townscape Heritage Initiative grant.
