Prescot receives THI grant

Great news for Prescot…
I am delighted to inform you that we have now received confirmation from the Heritage Lottery Fund that the Stage 2 bid application for the Townscape Heritage Initiative funding has been successful, and the Council has been allocated the full amount requested of £1.85m. As you are aware the project will see the repair and restoration of the town’s historic fabric to improve it’s overall appearance and emphasise Prescot’s rich heritage, as well as help to find new uses for vacant and underused premises. The physical works will include the replacement of dilapidated, or inappropriate modern shop fronts with a more traditional design to reinstate the original look and feel of the high street. The project will also include a wide variety of educational work and community events.  A training programme will give local people historic skills, as well as providing recognised qualifications to give them a foothold on a career in conservation construction and restoration. The majority of the works will be focused around Market Place and Eccleston Street to improve links between the modern retail park and traditional town centre in Prescot. We are in the process of appointing a dedicated officer who will manage the scheme. However in the meantime if you have any queries please email them through via the email address above and we will come back to you. 
Thanks again for all your support over the past few months.
Regards Helen Howarth Directorate of Regeneration, Economy and Skills
