Beverley Road Townscape Heritage Scheme

Beverley Road has been the main northern route into Hull since the medieval period making it one of the city’s most important ‘historic’ gateways. It is also a conservation area and has many important listed (and unlisted) buildings, mainly from the Victorian and Edwardian periods. Unfortunately, this important conservation area has suffered from economic decline in recent years, and as a result, is currently on the national ‘At Risk’ register.

In an effort to reverse this trend, the council successfully applied for some Heritage Lottery Funding (HLF) to deliver a Townscape Heritage (TH) scheme to help local property owners pay for much needed conservation repairs, restore architectural features, improve the historic streetscape and help to bring historic buildings back into use.
