Welcome to Dunbar Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme Feb 15th 2023

Expressions of interest from property owners for potential repair projects are now invited. The deadline for applications for the first round of funding is Friday 24th February 2023. Future rounds of funding will be advertised in due course.

A free Dunbar CARS introduction event will take place on Wednesday 15th February in the Community Room of Dunbar Townhouse from 5.30pm. Anyone interested in the scheme is invited to come along to hear more about the grants on offer and the complimentary activity that will be taking place. Places are limited therefore advance booking is advisable via eventbrite or by contacting the CARS team by email at

The aim of the scheme is to work with the local community to secure the historic built fabric for the future, undertake community engagement and education activities and deliver high quality professional training and upskilling opportunities – all of which will contribute to sustainable economic and community development within the Conservation Area and Dunbar as a whole.

The scheme will offer grant aid towards repair works to traditional buildings in private ownership as well as supporting complementary initiatives, such as traditional skills training community heritage projects, to increase awareness and understanding of the town’s rich heritage and the care and maintenance of its traditional buildings.

This event is aimed at homeowners interested in the grant scheme, or anyone with a general interest in Dunbar’s heritage and traditional buildings.
