Grant awarded to 22,28-30 High Street and 2, 4-6 John Street .

21st July 2021

The Penicuik Heritage Regeneration Project has approved building grant applications for a number of properties in the historic town centre.

They include 22 High Street, which is the Penicuik Store House. The Penicuik Alliance, who own the building, have got together with the owners of neighbouring properties at 28-30 High Street and 2 John Street to apply for funding support, along with the shop premises at 4-6 John Street.

They have all appointed the same architect and quantity surveyor to develop an improvement scheme that will be carried out by the same contractor. The total cost of the scheme is £226,205 and the grant award shared between the owners is £200,102.

The work will include repair and restoration work to roofs, chimneys, stonework and windows as well as improvements to the shop fronts. Traditional materials such as slate, lead work and natural stone will be used to match the originals, and traditional sash and case windows will be repaired or replaced. The shop front improvements involve taking off modern plastic fascias and signage and replacing them with traditional timber details, based on old photographs of the original premises
