Wisbech High Street is a stage closer in its transformation - as drone footage looks at its derelict buildings ahead of £350,000 project ‘The Gap’.
The two sites at 11-12 and 24 High Street will be developed as part of a £1.9 million Heritage Lottery Fund grant.
Architects working alongside the project team submitted a planning application last year to create The Gap at 24 High Street - that was once home to Cook’s Butchers.
A drone was used to access the condition of 11-12 High Street last weekend.
Taleyna Fletcher, from The Wisbech High Street Project, explained: “We are currently in discussions with the owner of 11-12 High Street regarding a grant for development of the site and a recent survey has been undertaken to assess the condition of the buildings using a drone for safety and cost effective reasons.”

In December, Fenland Council said they believed The Gap to be “an exceptional piece of public art” with a contemporary, multifunctional space that could stage community events, exhibitions and activities.
