Support for Property Developers

Historic England works with owners and developers to give historic buildings a future. We understand that sometimes their best chance of survival comes from adapting them to economically viable new uses.

That is where Historic England can help. This section of our website explains the package of support available for developers wanting to invest in historic buildings and give them a profitable future.

  • Finding a Property

    More than 15,000 listed buildings are currently at risk from neglect and decay. They offer challenges but also great potential.

  • Sources of Inspiration

    Imagining how tired and neglected historic buildings can be brought back to life can sometimes be a challenge.

  • Support for Your Property

    Adapting a historic building is a rewarding challenge. It requires an understanding of what's special about it and how it was built.

  • Funding

    Sometimes the re-development of historic buildings has to depend entirely on commercial investment.
