Friars Mill is a group of historic industrial buildings sitting on the bank of the River Soar a few minutes’ walk from Leicester City Centre. The buildings date from the late 1700’s and are understood to be some of the oldest textile factory buildings in the City. The site is of great heritage importance and the buildings are individually Listed, Grade II.
The Council acquired the site at the end of 2012 in a very poor state of repair; a number of the buildings have been subject to significant fire damage and subsequent water ingress. The Council has since secured support from the European Regional Development Fund to undertake the sympathetic restoration of the buildings and to convert them to 15 managed workspace units and associated common areas for small, high value-added businesses.
This project is ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) funded so all rules regarding ERDF need to be complied with. This includes but is not limited to complying with ERDF National Procurement Requirements (ERDF-GN-1-004).
