In May 2019, we launched a new multi-million pound fund which will allow us to work with partners to find new ways to champion and revive our historic high streets through the High Streets Heritage Action Zones scheme.
69 high streets across England have now been selected to receive a share of the £95 million fund.
These projects will now progress to the next stage of development and will work with us to develop plans to revive their high streets.

A Cultural Programme will take place on each of the 69 high streets in conjunction with the main High Streets Heritage Action Zones scheme.
Working with local communities and cultural organisations, this will celebrate what is unique about each place. Alongside local projects, we will commission artists and creatives to help bring a very special and diverse set of places together.
The Cultural Programme is also funded through the National Lottery Heritage Fund and supported by Arts Council England.
