High Streets Heritage Action Zone in Swaffham
March 2021 saw the start of Historic England's High Streets Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ) programme in Swaffham.
The HSHAZ programme aims to revive and champion historic high streets. It will revitalise Swaffham high street by maximising the potential of local character and heritage assets.
The project includes:
- The development of a Town Centre Improvement Masterplan by Urban Symbiotics.
- Reappraisal of the Swaffham Town Centre Conservation Area by Purcell Architecture.
- A Building Improvement Scheme, which is being delivered with the 'Conservation Accredited' Architect, Kings & Dunne Architects.
The Building Improvement Scheme is live and applies to buildings within the HSHAZ area. It provides up to 85 per cent grant funding for improvements and the reinstatement of traditional and heritage character features with match funding provided by Historic England. Kings & Dunne Architects will be working closely with Breckland Council and building owners throughout the programme until April 2024. This grant applies to buildings within the HSHAZ boundary only.
