Inveraray front street

Inveraray Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS) was a heritage-led regeneration project running from April 2013 to March 2018, and offered grant funding to property owners to assist with the repair of historical buildings.

Co-funded by Historic Environment Scotland (HES) and Argyll and Bute Council, Inveraray CARS has supported major repair and conservation works to 5 category A listed priority buildings as well as 6 small repair grant projects covering 54 properties in total.

Inveraray CARS has also organised a programme of traditional skills training, community engagement and funded an options appraisal for the Old Community Hall.

The total project budget was over £2.1M, including £970,059 from HES and £350,000 of match funding from Argyll and Bute Council.
