Sarah Franklin appointed to Project Board

We are delighted to announce that our Principal, Sarah Franklin has been appointed to the Project Board for the Kettering High Street Heritage Action Zone
Historic England has confirmed funding of £1,480,000 for the Kettering High Street Heritage Action Zone, with the four-year project beginning late summer that will restore our historical town centre. The HSHAZ is a Historic England initiative intended to breathe new life into town centres by revitalising old buildings and helping to regenerate a vibrant place for locals, businesses and visitors.
The funding of £1,480,000 supports an anticipated total of £4,354,000, including a contribution to commit £2.4 million from Kettering Borough Council towards the cultural-led regeneration plans.
Sarah said: “I am delighted, as chair of the Kettering Town Centre Partnership, to be the community representative on the Project Board of the HSHAZ. This project is key to the regeneration of Kettering town centre with the aim to push forward recovery and growth, both economic and cultural. Kettering has a rich history and I am looking forward to being part of the team ensuring that the Historic England funding, matched by the Council is put to great use in and around Kettering town centre.”
