Belper Milford Townscape Heritage Initiative
The project is a Market Town regeneration initiative, which will target key buildings and areas within Belper Town Centre and the adjoining settlement of Milford. The scheme currently stimulates private sector investment in commercial premises in the town centre and in historic residential premises. The overall aim of this 5-year project is to make the town centre more competitive and attractive to local shoppers and build on the opportunity of the World Heritage Site status to create a world-class tourist destination.
The project fits around 4 key strands:
Repairs to target commercial properties in King Street and the Market Place.
Re-instatement of architectural detail
Reinstatement of lost architectural features to commercial premises in King Street and Market Place. Includes re-instatement of traditional shop fronts, removal of inappropriate features.
Bringing Vacant Floor space into use
To increase the vitality and viability of the town by bringing vacant space into economic use, the key target area is the Market Place.
Enhancing Tourism Appeal
Key tourism appeal works to create a quality historic environment and infrastructure for national andinternational visitors.
This project has been awarded £765,508 by DDEP
