This page includes information about the buildings within Bridlington Quay as well as lots of information about how to look after older buildings more generally. The buildings within the Townscape Heritage area show how a coastal town can develop over time. The buildings’ architectural details chart Bridlington’s origins from a small harbour, to a Victorian seaside resort, to the twentieth-century heyday as a tourist destination and its role today on the east coast.
26-34 King Street
Repairs have now been completed at these five buildings on King Street, which were shortlisted for a Chairman's Award in May 2019.
33 King Street
The works to 33 King Street included a replacement shop front to better mirror the one at number 29 (Specsavers). It was designed based on the original drawings for the building which were discovered in the East Riding Archives.
Helping owners to improve their historic properties is a major part of the Townscape Heritage scheme. We have identified a number of properties that are priorities and would like to hear from any property owners or tenants (with full repairing liability).
The Townscape Heritage project is a heritage-led regeneration scheme, which aims to “preserve and enhance” the character and appearance of the conservation area. All works must therefore respect the special character of the building and the conservation area of which it forms a part. This means that all works must meet high conservation standards and be carried out by suitably qualified contractors using appropriate traditional materials.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to receive the Guidance notes and an Enquiry form.
Eligible works include:
- Repairs (to roofs, rainwater goods, brickwork, windows etc.)
- Reinstatement of original features (such as shop fronts, windows, masonry detailing)
- Bringing vacant floorspace back into use (including conversion of upper floors)
Repairs attract a grant rate of 60%, reinstatement 80%, whilst grants to bring buildings back into use will be calculated on an individual conservation-deficit basis.
Regular maintenance is one of the best ways of making sure that you don't have to spend lots of money on major repairs.
