A charity funding repairs to Aberdeen’s historic buildings has expanded its work to take in all of the city centre.

Aberdeen City Heritage Trust is to spread out to include the Union Street, Bon Accord and Crown Street conservation areas.

The initiative, backed by the council and Historic Environment Scotland funding, can help to pay for significant repairs and restoration to residential and commercial buildings.

Particular emphasis is being put on encouraging work in King Street, Marischal Street, Market Street, Bridge Street and other priority areas, where grants covering 60% of the cost of work on homes and 85% on shopfronts can be awarded.

Elsewhere within the city centre, funding covers half the cost of repairs to residences and 75% for businesses.

Work must be carried out using agreed traditional methods suited to the historic granite setting of the city centre.

Trust director Lord Provost Barney Crockett said: “We are delighted to expand the building repairs grants to a larger area of Aberdeen city centre and by doing so give more property owners the opportunity to benefit from the substantial support that is available.

“It is essential that everyone pulls together to ensure that the city centre remains resilient in the face of current challenges in these unprecedented times.”

Trust funding runs through until next March.

Those eligible for other council funding through the Union Street conservation area regeneration scheme cannot apply.
