Perth city Heritage Fund have been able to assist building owners to repair their buildings in a wide variety of ways, from repairing sash and case windows to roof repairs to masonry. A few examples are given below.
PCHF gave grant assistance to the owner to help defray the costs of repairing Georgian sash and case windows in this flat in the city centre.
“I am delighted with my new windows. They are lovely to look at and have made my property warmer and quieter. Without the grant I would not have been able to go ahead. From the start the help I received from PKHT was excellent. It was a very easy process to apply for the grant and correspondence was super. Thank you once again for all your help.”

PCHF gave grant assistance to local charity VisionPK to help with the costs of window and masonry repairs to their offices in New Row.
“We are extremely grateful to Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust for its support and advice regarding the repair and improvement works to the front of our historic premises in New Row, Perth. As we are a registered charity the grant ... was hugely important in enabling us to proceed when we did. Many people have commented on how much more attractive the building now is, without losing its essential character.”
Bob Ironside, Chief Executive, VisionPK
A small late 19th century single storey cottage which had been unsympathetically extended in the past and was in poor condition. Support from PCHF assisted the owners to repair the remaining historic fabric and replace the modern alterations with more sympathetic designs using traditional materials. The house has been thoroughly modernised inside, but now sits well alongside its larger historic neighbours.
