Shopfront Enhancement Scheme

Shopfront Enhancement Scheme

Funding is available for businesses and landlords to improve their street-facing commercial properties within the district of North East Derbyshire, especially those within town centres and on high streets.

The scheme will not only enhance the character, value and appeal of each individual property but collectively will have a positive impact on the appearance of the high streets.

Aimed at making town centres and high streets more inviting and vibrant places for residents and visitors to enjoy, grants will be available from a minimum of £500 to a maximum of £10,000, a contribution of up to 75% of total project costs.

The scheme is funded through the North East Derbyshire UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

What activities can the scheme fund?

  • New signage, windows, doors, canopies and professional fees
  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Appropriate lighting
  • Access improvements
  • Reinstatement of historical shopfront
  • Stonework repairs
  • Appropriate external artwork
  • External planters or seating
