Residents living in Moray’s 18 conservation areas are being offered up to a maximum of £15,000 to repair or instal traditional windows.

The scheme is being run by Moray Council with cash from the Scottish Government’s Place Based Investment Programme.

Councillor David Gordon (Speyide/Glenlivet, Conservative), who chairs the planning committee, said: "I’d encourage those living in Moray’s conservation areas to consider applying for financial support under this scheme.

"Not only will replacement or repaired windows help to reduce the carbon emissions of a home, they can save households money on their energy bill.

"Preserving the heritage of our conservation areas helps to keep Moray’s architecture and historic buildings special."

Having planning permission and/or listed building consent is a requirement.

Residents who don’t have planning permission and are unsure if it is necessary have until December 2 to submit information to the Moray Council to find out whether it is or not.

Applications to the scheme must be submitted by February 10 to localdevelopmentplan@moray.gov.uk.

Moray Council will assess how the funds should be allocated to best preserve and reflect the character of the conservation area.
