Partnership Schemes in Conservation Areas

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

We know this is a challenging and unprecedented time and our priority in the coming months is to ensure that we continue to support all who work in the heritage sector.

Information for existing grant recipients

Local authorities can apply for funding under our Partnership Schemes in Conservation Areas (PSICA) scheme. These schemes are run on a day-to-day basis by local authorities and are designed to target funding for the preservation and enhancement of conservation areas.

They are based on a partnership between us, the Local Authority and other funding bodies and are designed to ensure the long term sustainable future of conservation areas, in particular through supporting heritage-based regeneration initiatives.

Procurement regulations

Public procurement regulations mean that if more than 50% of a project is publicly funded, applicants to this scheme will have to demonstrate they have appointed any professional advisers in a competitive way. You will also have to tender for the building contract.

How to apply

This scheme is administered by staff in our local offices.
