The former Royal Oak public house in Belper
The recognition of the importance of the Derwent Valley Mills by inscription as a World Heritage Site presents a major opportunity for developing visitor-led regeneration. For the communities to benefit from investment from visitors, it needs to be maintained as an attractive historic environment.
Partnership Scheme in Conservation Areas (PSiCA)
This scheme is now closed. Owners of buildings within the World Heritage Site were eligible for grants towards external structural repairs, reinstatement of lost external architectural detail and bringing vacant floorspace into use.
