TOWNSCAPE HERITAGE

Jewellery Quarter Townscape Heritage is a regeneration grant scheme, based in the heart of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter. It funds a programme of repair and restoration works throughout an area known as the 'industrial middle', bringing empty historic spaces back in to use and improving the public realm.
