Heritage Action Zone & Conservation Area Grants

In 2017 Nottingham City Council secured £2.7m of funding from Historic England’s Heritage Action Zone scheme to revitalise the city centre and enhance Nottingham’s built heritage. During the course of a 5-year period this delivered a range of improvements to various historic buildings and conservation areas, including:

  • 14 historic shop fronts reinstated in places like Market Street, Carrington Street and Wheeler Gate.
  • Listed status given to significant buildings, such as Richmond House (Canal Street) and the Raleigh cycle company’s former head offices on Lenton Boulevard.
  • Repairs and conversation of the Birkin Building (Lace Market) for the creative industries.
  • A new roof for Bromley House, a Grade II* listed subscription library on Angel Row.
