Perth City Heritage Fund

Increasing economic and social wellbeing through the historic environment.

Organisation: Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust
Project title: Perth City Heritage Fund


A Historic Environment Scotland funded project encouraging the regeneration of Perth’s historic buildings. The scheme fosters economic regeneration by grant-assisting owners of historic buildings with the costs of high quality repairs using traditional materials and best conservation practice.

The first two phases (2012-2018) have provided £1.1m of grant assistance to 46 projects. Key listed tenements have been transformed and empty shops brought back into use improving homes and enhancing economic vibrancy in the city.

Traditional building skills have also been promoted at an annual roadshow allowing secondary school pupils to try roof slating, stone masonry, specialist joinery and craft painting & decorating.
