Grant Aid

Prescot Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) grant scheme

Prescot Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) is a five year project to repair, restore and re-use historic buildings and spaces in Prescot town centre. Prescot is one of the oldest settlements in Merseyside and the project is drawing on its diverse heritage to help shape the town's future.

The THI is supporting the restoration of shopfronts, historic architectural features, repairs to historic buildings and improvement of open spaces, including the medieval Market Place. It aims to make Prescot town centre more attractive and vibrant, by working with existing businesses, attracting new businesses and creating new homes.

The initiative is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Knowsley Council and other local partners. In total around £4 million will be invested in bringing Prescot's heritage back to life.

The Initiative began in 2013 and is due to run until 2018.

Further information including which properties are eligible to apply for the funding and the type of work which may attract a grant, can be found on the dedicated Prescot THI website.  Photographs of the THI project buildings are here.

There are at present no other sources of grant funding available for historic buildings in Knowsley.
