Folkestone closer to securing conservation grant

Heritage Lottery Fund supports proposals to improve Folkestone Conservation Area

A partnership comprising Kent County Council, Shepway District Council and The Creative Foundation has won through the first round of a process to secure up to £1.3 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for major improvements to streets and buildings within the Folkestone Conservation Area. The project aims to renovate or substantially refurbish a number of buildings, including the former Millets building in The Old High Street, as well as make significant improvements to streets and other public areas.

The partnership team now has the green light to develop its proposals further over the coming year, leading to an application for a full grant within the next year.
