The funding that Leominster receives will be invested in a range of projects within Leominster’s Conservation Area, in the heart of the town centre.
Each project is designed to revive Leominster’s historic buildings and streetscape, while unlocking the economic potential of our much-loved town – benefitting residents and visitors alike.
Leominster’s HSHAZ Scheme is led by Herefordshire Council, in partnership with Leominster Town Council, and is overseen by Historic England. Among other spending, funds will be invested in improving the appearance of our town and celebrating its heritage.
This exciting scheme will fuel economic, social, and cultural recovery and encourage more people to come and say Hi! to our high street.
“It’s fantastic news for our whole community that Historic England have recognised Leominster’s unique heritage and are investing in the town’s conservation area. We want to celebrate Leominster’s amazing history, and its beautiful buildings, while supporting the local economy to recover and thrive in the years ahead.”
Councillor John Rumsey, Mayor, Leominster Town Council.
