King Street Funding Initiative

A wide range of organisations and individuals care for the historic environment across the private, public and voluntary sectors.

Organisation:Stirling City Heritage Trust
Project title:King Street Funding Initiative

The King Street Funding Initiative was a 6 year project aiming to conserve and repair one of Stirling’s most historic streets. Located in the heart of the city centre, King Street has suffered from high levels of vacancy, reduced footfall and disrepair with failing building fabric.

Over the course of the project, there has been a total investment of some £1.2 million.  The work has been delivered by Stirling City Heritage Trust, a Scottish Charity with investment from Historic Environment Scotland, Stirling Council and property owners. The works ranged from small shopfront enhancements to full tenement repairs.  In total works were completed to 24 residential flats, 9 shops and 4 businesses.  Focusing investment in this street recognised its social and architectural importance to Stirling and its ongoing contribution to the economic vitality of the city centre.  In 2018 this significant investment has helped to reduce the level of vacancy in the street.
