The Conservation Section of Epping Forest District Council`s Planning Services has produced a final summary booklet of the Waltham Abbey Heritage Economic Regeneration Scheme (HERS). Heritage Economic Regeneration Schemes are conservation-led initiatives launched by English Heritage in 1998 to provide financial assistance with building repairs and enhancement within Conservation Areas.

The Waltham Abbey HERS, which was jointly funded by English Heritage, Epping Forest District Council, Tesco and Sainsbury`s was initiated in 2001 and successfully completed earlier this year having provided grant aid totalling £375,000 to 18 properties within the Waltham Abbey Conservation Area. This scheme allowed for considerable progress towards enhancing the character and appearance of Waltham Abbey Town Centre.

The final summary booklet, which has been produced by the Conservation Section of the District Council’s Planning Services, provides details on each of the grant aided projects, with before and after photographs, as well as background information on the aims of the HERS and related initiatives of the scheme.

The booklet is available by calling the Conservation Section on 01992 564119, via email to psutton@eppingforestdc.gov.uk or by writing to the Conservation Section, Planning Services, Civic Offices, Epping Forest District Council, High Street, Epping, CM16 4BZ.
