How to apply
The application process has 3 stages.
Stage 1 – Pre-application
Your implementation plan (PA1) grant application had to be received by Natural England by 29 June 2018.
Stage 2 – Complete a management plan
When you get your implementation plan agreement, you need to work with your National Park adviser to:
- develop a project brief
- obtain competitive quotations from 3 experienced conservation consultants to oversee the restoration work
- submit an application for a feasibility study (PA2) grant
Once your feasibility study grant’s agreed, the consultant must use the project brief to develop the building restoration management plan. Your National Park adviser can support preparation of the management plan and must approve it before you obtain formal tenders from contractors for the work.
You must complete the management plan before the 20 April 2020 deadline for stage 3.
Stage 3 – Apply for a historic building restoration grant
Your application must be received by Natural England by 20 April 2020.
Contact your local National Park adviser for support through the application process and if you have any queries.
