The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded the Council £1.2million for the project in Church Street Conservation Area. The scheme comprises three elements, building grants, public realm works and community engagement.
The Townscape Heritage Project will complement an ambitious regeneration programme in the town centre. A key element of this is the Innovation and Skills Quarter (ISQ) which has seen Cleveland College of Art and Design invest £11million in a new campus building on a site in Church Street. Alongside this there are proposals to renew public realm enhancing connectivity in the area and a plan to develop workspaces for businesses in the creative industries supported by £5.5million Local Growth Funding from Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnership.
You will be qualified to a degree level in historic building conservation or a related discipline. A good working knowledge of HLF funded schemes and management of conservation areas and historic buildings is required for this role, as well as experience in heritage-led regeneration.
The project will have a strong focus on community engagement therefore experience in delivering community based schemes or outreach work, including working with a diverse range of audiences and stakeholders, would be an advantage.
