Carrickfergus Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) is an ambitious regeneration scheme breathing new life into the town’s Conservation Area, maintaining heritage, boosting tourism and growing the local economy.

Follow progress on all our projects online here or using #MEAHeritage and watch our videos on YouTube.

We also have a range of educational resources for all ages here.

About Us

The £2.4million scheme is delivered by Council, supported by funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund and building owners.

The Carrickfergus THI is delivered by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council with the oversight of the Carrickfergus THI Board, which is made up of local councillors and community representatives.

We work with local building owners to restore and rejuvenate buildings in Carrickfergus town centre. Our aim is to boost economic growth whilst protecting and promoting the area’s rich heritage.

Skilled contractors guided by us will help restore heritage lost over the centuries and reinvigorate the stories of the people and places behind what makes the town centre what it is today.
