Shop Front Improvement Grant01/01/2017
Newport Now is looking to assist shops and businesses to improve the appearance of their shop fronts. Grants of up to £800 excluding VAT (£1,000 including VAT) are available. The grant would cover up to 75% of the total cost of the work. For example, if the total cost of the work was £1,500 including VAT, you could apply for the full £1,000 grant. If the total cost of the work was £1,000 including VAT, you could apply for a maximum of £750.
The scheme is open to all Newport Now members paying the BID levy and the aim is to help local businesses to upgrade the frontage of their shops/offices, thereby creating a more attractive environment for shoppers and visitors to the city centre.
There is currently a budget of £25,000 available for the scheme and grants will be issued on a first come, first served basis. The application process is very simple, however, there are terms and conditions that must be complied with.
