Restoring Victorian canopies

[From Stockport Times - 1/6/06]
Members of the Heatons Neighbourhood Partnership want to find a way to attract money to restore the attractive but damaged Victorian canopies in the Heaton Moor shopping centre.
It is estimated that the full cost of restoring the canopies would be more than £120,000 and the council would not be able to finance this because they are privately owned and they are unlikely to qualify for heritage/conservation grants because they are not listed. The partnership asked for a report outlining other possible sources of funding to be made to its next meeting next month.

[I would like to see all the Victorian canopies being listed whether they be in: Heaton Moor, Edgeley, the A6 or anywhere else. - Bill]
