Welcome to the Folkestone Townscape Heritage Initiative

The Folkestone Townscape Heritage Initiative (FTHI) is a partnership between Kent County Council, Folkestone & Hythe District Council (formerly Shepway District Council) and the private sector through the Creative Foundation.

Funding was made available by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the partnership helped Folkestone's communities improve the built historic environment of Character Area 4, the Heritage Quarter, the Old Town, which was in need of investment.
