Mendip District Council operates a programme of discretionary grant aid to assist in the repair of historic buildings. However, the council only has a finite budget, which may impact upon the level of grant aid available; to check whether funds for this purpose are available contact the heritage conservation section.

Eligible work must involve repairs to the structure, or the repair/conservation of original features of architectural or historic interest. Work associated with recurring maintenance, extensions, conversions, adaptations or improvements will not be eligible for grant aid.
