Kirkham has been awarded an £80,000 grant from Historic England to create and deliver community-led cultural activities on the high street over the next three years.

Fylde Council’s Regeneration Officers have been working closely with Kirkham's local business groups and Town Council to formulate a proposal. An initial expression of interest was submitted to the Government for assistance through both the principal fund and the Heritage fund. The initial bids were successful and the team has been formulating a detailed business case together with some plans for the restoration of key buildings which are now shown here in this website.
We have secured funding for Shop Front Renovation grants for shop keepers. Currently we are assessing the demand in order to finalise the offer.
