INVESTMENT AND DEVELOPMENT

HIGH STREET HERITAGE ACTION ZONE PROJECT OFFICER

Fixed Term contract due to a specific project
Salary: Grade I. Scale 35 - £38,890 to Scale 37 - £40,876 + benefits
36 hours per week

Based at Dukinfield Town Hall and Stalybridge

The town centre of Stalybridge has exciting potential, with historic architecture, a river and a canal running through the centre, a growing cultural offer, a semi-rural location with great rail links to Manchester and Leeds and a large catchment area. In 2018 Stalybridge was agreed as Tameside’s town centre for the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Town Centre Challenge, an ambitious initiative to regenerate urban centres across Greater Manchester, securing priority and profile for the regeneration of Stalybridge town centre.

This is an exciting time for Stalybridge town centre. We are working in partnership with Historic England to deliver the High Street Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ) programme. Tameside Council is now looking to recruit an enthusiastic and experienced High Street Heritage Action Zone Project Officer to project manage the development and implementation of the four year HSHAZ programme, which runs until March 2024.

Historic England’s HSHAZ programme is helping to revitalise historic high streets by building upon local identity and quality of lives through an understanding and celebration of the town’s heritage, the protection of the historic environment and bringing historic buildings back into use.

The programme is a joint funded series of projects between Tameside Council and Historic England that will engage with building owners to bring physical improvements to buildings of historic and architectural interest. The post will also manage a grant funding programme to assist with this initiative. The role will involve liaising with a range of specialists, consultants and project teams to support the delivery of the scheme, and work closely with partners and stakeholders, including the local community, businesses, and owners.

You will understand the opportunities for town centre regeneration and economic growth and you will be experienced in historic building conservation projects with proven urban design and regeneration project management. You will be skilled in working with a wide range of partners and stakeholders, with colleagues and contractors.

For an informal discussion please contact Julie Burke, Head of Major Programmes by emailing julie.burke@tameside.gov.uk or phoning 07725 481 822.
