Holyhead Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI)

The Holyhead Townscape Initiative (THI) is a heritage regeneration programme which is part funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) across the UK. For the first phase, Anglesey County Council secured £1m from the HLF towards a THI in Holyhead Town Centre, and secured matching resources of some £2m to create a funding package totalling some £3m. The matching funds included contributions from ERDF, Welsh Assembly, Anglesey County Council, and Cadw. A second phase THI is now starting thanks to a further HLF award of £1.5m, matched by Welsh Government VVP and ERDF funds.

The Holyhead THI includes the following components:-

  • Grants for historic building improvements
  • Funds for urban realm heritage improvements
  • Education, training, publicity and interpretation
  • Project officer employment and other running costs. The THI Project Manager is Nathan Blanchard, who is based with the County Council Planning Service
