Historic Farm Buildings Grant

Dartmoor National Park Authority, Natural England and Historic England are working in partnership to deliver a pilot project for the restoration of traditional farm buildings within the National Park through the Countryside Stewardship Scheme.

A grant of 80% towards the cost of restoration is available for eligible buildings. This could include replacing the roof, weatherproofing the exterior, or other restoration works so that the building can be used again for farming purposes.

The scheme is open for applications until 31 January 2019 and, if approved, agreement holders will have two years to complete the works. The grant is also supported by an implementation plan so that applicants can work with Dartmoor National Park on developing a management plan to deliver the restoration. This work is 100% funded so applicants can seek the advice they need to develop high quality applications and secure funding for their projects.
