Townscape Heritage Grants

The Townscape Heritage Project offers grants of up to 80% of the costs for repairs, restoration and reinstatement of original features to historic properties within the Project Area.

Both property owners and businesses are eligible to apply for the grants, subject to condition.

Grants are funded 50% by Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council and 50% by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Applicants will need to fund 20% of the total costs of the works.

Grants are awarded at the discretion of the Townscape Heritage Grants Panel, an independent panel of local people responsible for overseeing delivery of the Project.

Group Ginger Arcitects have recently been appointed by Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council to support private property owners and businesses develop suitable schemes and access the grants.
