Napper Appointed to Deliver Specialist Conservation Architectural Services.
30 January 2020
Graeme Dodd RIBA SCA, Director at Napper Architects, has been appointed by Durham County Council (DCC) to assist in their delivery of the Bishop Auckland Heritage Action Zone Conservation Area Grant Scheme. The project is jointly funded by DCC and Historic England and will run from 2019 to 2022.
The vision is to secure sustainable growth in the town centre through heritage-led regeneration by creating a more vibrant, connected and enhanced historic core. The project is focused on providing grants that repair or conserve historic buildings in order that owners can bring back into use previously vacant properties. The outcome will support new or develop existing businesses, create and safeguard jobs and improve overall the look of the conservation area.
Graeme Dodd stated that he is looking forward to working with the project team at DCC and the grant applicants.
