Grant of more than £40,000 will enable vital repairs to Inverness city centre building

Academy Street in Inverness

The Inverness Townscape Heritage Project has pledged a substantial grant towards the cost of repairs to a city centre building.

The 21 to 25 Academy Street address is already home to Coyote Coffee and Doughnuts, and Craig Wood Solicitors.

And a new tenant will be taking up residence at 25 Academy Street, the former Highland Schoolwear shop, following the completion of repairs.

The heritage group’s grant of £42,197 covers half of the cost of the upgrade,  with the remainder being funded by the building owners.

Work covered by the cash injection, which was announced yesterday, includes refurbishment and repair of the roof and chimney, lead work and stonework repairs.

Bob Tilford, owner of 25 Academy Street, said: “Receiving grant funding from Inverness Townscape Heritage Project has enabled us to carry out necessary repairs.

“Parts of the building being renewed will be carried out like-for-like, including Scottish slate and cast-iron guttering replacements.

“I look forward to welcoming our new tenants following the completion of work.”

The donation is part of a series of investments by the Inverness Townscape Heritage Project, which is a partnership regeneration scheme.

The organisation is made up of funding partners including National Lottery Heritage Fund , Historic Environment Scotland via the Inverness City Heritage Trust and is coordinated and led by Highland Council.
