Business Frontage Improvement Grant
The Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge Town Council Businesses Frontage Improvement Grant is there to assist independent retail, commercial properties and owners of vacant retail units in the town centre. It is designed to encourage repairs, renovations and enhancements to business frontages.
Why introduce this scheme?
Shop fronts and business frontages are the most clearly visible part of a building’s façade and they make a big impact on the appearance on the town centre.
They contribute to people's first impression of the town and their condition can affect the town's image, either positively or negatively.
Shop fronts and business frontages that are in poor condition and showing signs of neglect are often used as indicators of economic decline. High quality fronts can make a town feel more welcoming to locals and visitors, improve its image, contribute towards a stronger sense of identity and, importantly, encourage a greater number of shopping visits by locals and visitors alike.
