ABC Council and Heritage Lottery Fund put city’s built heritage at forefront of major streetscape revamp
An investment of £6.3 million will transform Armagh’s historic city centre as part of an exciting regeneration scheme to bring up to 30 iconic but underused buildings back into full productive use, creating jobs and boosting the local economy.
Led by the Armagh City Townscape Heritage Partnership, with support from Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund, the five-year Armagh City Townscape Heritage project, will be directly geared towards repairing 28 properties and bringing around 5,000 square meters of historic floor space back into sustainable use.
Almost 50 new jobs will be created over the course of the scheme, securing an additional 30 once complete, which will act as a real catalyst for millions of pounds of investment and growth.
Key buildings in Armagh’s protected conservation area, which includes Upper English Street, Scotch Street, Barrack Street and Russell Street, will now be redeveloped as part of the overall heritage-led regeneration project. Several existing businesses in the city will also directly benefit from the scheme.
