The Brecon Town Centre Historic Building Grant is being made available to owners of commercial buildings within the centre of the market town. If successful, applicants could see the National Park Authority fund up to 40% of the cost of a restoration project for buildings qualifying for the scheme
Although domestic buildings aren’t eligible for funding, flats above shops in the centre of Brecon could be considered.
Owners of suitable properties are now being urged to get in touch with the National Park Authority before the grant scheme closes in February.
Rosie Burton, Senior Heritage Officer (Buildings Conservation) for Bannau Brycheiniog National Park Authority explained: “Brecon town centre is blessed with so many beautiful, historic buildings, but time can often be unkind to these heritage gems.
“The Brecon Town Centre Historic Building Grant is the perfect opportunity for property owners to get help to restore their commercial buildings back to their former glory, as well as playing their part in maintaining the fantastic built fabric of Brecon town centre.”
Martin Buckle, Member Champion for Heritage for Bannau Brycheiniog National Park Authority, added: “The National Park Authority’s management plan recognises the importance of our historic and cultural heritage, and this fantastic grant will provide real financial support to anyone restoring a historic building in the centre of Brecon.
“I would urge anyone considering undertaking work on a commercial building to get in touch with the National Park Authority and take advantage of this great scheme.”
