We successfully bid for a Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) on Coatsworth Road in Bensham and Saltwell. This brought in over £1.9 million of investment over five years. The project ran from December 2012 to December 2017 delivering:

  • grants to repair and restore 25 priority historic buildings on Coatsworth Road
  • grants to bring empty properties back into use
  • some public realm improvements
  • activities to involve local traders in supporting small businesses, and local people in maintaining buildings and practical skills, and improving the local knowledge of conservation, design and planning

We hope that by restoring the historic environment, the quality of life for people living, working and shopping on Coatsworth Road will be improved.
