Cowbridge Charter Trust is set to receive a grant from the Vale of Glamorgan Council, to continue to maintain the Town Wall.
The Vale Cabinet will vote on the proposal in a meeting today that would agree a three-year grant for the trust of £1,128 per annum, and a corresponding licence be made for the period.
Following a partial collapse of the Town Wall in 2008 the Vale Council made a grant of £60,000 to CCT who restored the Town Wall to a safe and attractive condition.
Since the award of the initial grant funding, successive grants have been made to CCT to ensure the ongoing repair and maintenance of the Grade II listed Town Walls.
The previous grant agreement saw CCT awarded £902 per annum, since 2018.
“Due to the demolition of the Cattle pens in the area and the increase in façade to be maintained CCT have requested a 25% increase on the grant award which approximately represents the increase in area,” states the report.
Last month the historic Town Walls were vandalised . It was then estimated that the damage would cost £500 to repair.
