DR selected to support major new heritage project in Tavistock

We are very much looking forward to working with Tavistock Town Council to help them transform some of the key historic buildings in the centre of this ancient town.  The Tavistock Townscape Heritage project aims to work with the buildings’ owners and tenants to give these buildings a facelift, restoring and enhancing features of architectural merit and refreshing the heart of the old town.  We will be offering technical support to Katharine West, the Project Manager, and helping behind the scenes to ensure that the project is as successful as possible.
