Newark awarded Heritage Action Zone status

14 September 2019

Newark has been awarded Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) status having secured a £250,000 boost from Historic England for conservation projects in the town centre.

 

Funding will be focused on helping to revive and revitalise the town, particularly in helping to promote traditional shop frontages, offering assistance and incentives to convert upper floors, assisting in improving the fortunes of ‘problem’ buildings, and dealing with the consequences of heritage crime.

The funding will be used for a variety of projects, including:

● To complete essential repair works in historic buildings and reveal hidden and forgotten features of buildings by restoring shop-fronts and façades 

● Stimulating commercial investment in high streets by demonstrating how historic sites can be successfully repurposed and offering funding towards projects

● Developing education projects and bespoke events to help repurpose historic buildings at the heart of local towns

Councillor David Lloyd, leader of Newark and Sherwood District Council, said: “This is excellent news and will assist helping to preserve the town’s unique historical qualities, address buildings which are of concern, and further enhance Newark as a place to visit and in which to stay.”
