Wellingborough Shop Front Improvement Project

About this opportunity

The Borough Council of Wellingborough with its initiative, Enterprise Wellingborough, has provided an opportunity for organisations within Wellingborough town centre to receive a grant to carry out shop front improvements. Grant funding is available for town centre organisations to complete works that fall into the category of external repairs, external decoration, external security or signage.

The appearance of shop fronts has a considerable influence on the overall character of a place. They are an essential element, not only of the buildings in which they are set but also of their wider appearance. A shop front that has been designed with respect given to the architecture of the building and character of the surrounding area can add charm and vitality, making it attractive to both the occupier and visitors alike.

The Shop Front Improvement Project provides the local organisations in the town centre with a chance to apply for some funding to improve their shop displays, carry out essential repairs, new signs, new shutters etc. The project helps to improve the town centre and enhance the quality and individuality of shopfronts to improve the appearance of the town centre as a destination and hopefully lead to increased footfall and expenditure.

Take a look at the information pack for more information, and just submit the application form to take advantage of this project! Check out the Shop Front Advertising and Design Guide as well.
