A total of £60,000 of grant funding has been awarded to carry out traditional repair works to four town centre properties as part of the Jedburgh Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS).

The four successful projects to receive funding are at:

  • 22 High Street
  • Crown Lane House
  • 1 Abbey Place
  • 1 Market Place.

Five year programme

The £1million Jedburgh CARS programme, a partnership between Historic Environment Scotland and ourselves, will enable a targeted approach for conservation-based building repairs within the town centre as well as providing opportunities for a wide range of traditional skills training and community heritage education activities.

It is also expected to generate private sector contributions, and will run until 2022.

Colin Gilmour, Jedburgh CARS project officer

“The CARS programme provides owners of traditional buildings within the town centre the opportunity to access grants to assist with appropriate repairs to their properties and hopefully these four initial projects will be the first of many in Jedburgh.

“The next submission deadline for grant applications is 22 June, and any property owners interested in applying for funding can find out more at

Course for contractors

Next month a popular two day course will run in conjunction with the Scottish Lime Centre Trust for local contractors and building professionals, providing an introduction to the conservation and repair of traditional masonry structures and buildings using traditional lime-based mortars.

Limited places are available on the course, which will take place at Hundalee Mill Farm on 18 and 19 June, at a significantly reduced cost of £25 plus VAT.

For more information on the course or to book a place please contact the Scottish Lime Centre Trust.
