The Armley Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) is a grant scheme focused on restoring selected historic properties on Branch Road and Town Street which are part of the Armley conservation area. The key building is the former chapel building which is known as ‘Mike’s Carpets’, a grade 2 listed building. The initiative has already made it possible to put in a natural Yorkstone footpath along Armley Town Street, which together with the enhancement project at Armley Moor will help to raise the profile and image of Armley town centre.
In addition grants are available for some historic properties to help building owners and tenants repair, replace or restore historic detail such as shop fronts and sash windows.
The Armley Heritage Advisory Group checks grant scheme progress and discusses local conservation issues. Local people are welcome to get involved in the Group's quarterly meetings.
Regular newsletters keep the owners of buildings eligible for the grant scheme aware of new opportunities. To find out more, please contact Wyn Jones on 0113 2475978, email email@example.com or download grant guidance notes from this page.
