Dolgellau Listed Building Grants Heritage Lottery Investment Snowdonia National Park

 

Dyfi Architecture Limited have worked on many Conservation Architecture Projects involving Listed Buildings and those in Conservation Areas in Snowdonia National Park and across Wales.

News is expected soon on the combined investment of £2.6m allocated for Township Heritage Projects in Dolgellau, Gwynedd and Anglesey to enable the conservation of historic buildings. Regeneration projects ensure that Listed or Historic buildings can be repaired and restored and Dolgellau is considered an international architectural gem for its unique medieval street layout, its buildings and its location at the foot of Cader Idris. Dolgellau is steeped in history with over 180 listed buildings in the town and ensuring the future of this built heritage has been a priority for Snowdonia National Park for many years as part of long term regeneration plans.

Welcoming the grant award, Emyr Williams, Chief Executive of Snowdonia National Park Authority, said: “There is history in every crack and crevice of this town and it is vitally important that we protect that history whilst helping the town thrive. We’ve worked with HLF on improvements in the town for a number of years already and look forward to building on progress already made in Dolgellau.” Three squares within the town have already been identified as focus points for the project: Queen’s Square, Eldon Square and Smithfield Square, where conservation works will include bringing empty, upper floor spaces back into use, as well as restoration works to shop fronts, balconies and windows.

Dyfi Architecture Limited is able to act as lead Consultants on grant funded projects such as the Heritage Lottery Fund. Those looking to commission work on traditional and historic buildings are able to use those on the Register of Accredited Conservationists with confidence that they have a high level of skill and professional experience in building conservation, repair and maintenance.
