Regeneration through Conservation             

In 2012 city status was reinstated to Perth, and Historic Scotland awarded £650,000 of funding towards improvements of buildings within the Conservation Areas of the city through the Perth City Heritage Fund.

Managed by Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust in conjunction with Perth and Kinross Council and it is hoped that a second three-year tranche of funding will continue work already started in the future.
