Berwick-upon-Tweed Conservation Area Advisory Group (CAAG)

The Berwick-upon-Tweed Conservation Area Advisory Group (CAAG) was created in 1999 to oversee a range of partnership projects in the borough's conservation areas. It has delivered a number of heritage regeneration schemes since then through a combined grant programme using English Heritage, County and Borough Council funds. This includes repairs to individual buildings, streetscape enhancements and the further study of the town's unique heritage.
