Jedburgh conservation area regeneration

This initiative has now closed

Jedburgh Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS) is a partnership project we have developed in conjunction with a community based Jedburgh CARS Steering Group. The group successfully obtained funding from Historic Environment Scotland (HES) in January 2017 for a heritage led regeneration project for Jedburgh town centre.

Jedburgh CARS is focused on a range of heritage and conservation based regeneration activities within the town centre over a five year period (2017-22).

The project has an overall budget of just over £1m, funded by Historic Environment Scotland (£866.5k) and ourselves (£150k) and will run until 31 March 2022.

The main aim of the Jedburgh CARS is to support the repair of traditional buildings (pre-1919) within a defined area of the town using appropriate traditional methods of construction.

The scheme provides grants to property owners to undertake repairs and restoration to accepted conservation standards. Grants will be awarded in a series of rounds with funding in the range of 50%-75% of eligible costs (up to a maximum of £15k) with owners required to provide match funding of the remaining amount.
