Shop Improvement Grant Scheme
Newton Abbot Town Council and Teignbridge District Council have allocated funds to assist with improvements to ground floor frontages and access of shop premises in Newton Abbot in order to improve the look of local shopping areas. The shop improvement grant scheme is open to all freeholders and lease-holders with at least five years remaining on their lease and tenants of premises with commercial or community services shop-frontages facing the street within the town of Newton Abbot. This will include local shopping parades e.g. as in Buckland. A grant is available to cover up to 50% of the total expenditure on the proposed project. This means that owners/tenants will still need to finance the remaining 50%.
Applications are open until 31st March and 30th September 2018 for work ranging from entirely new shop fronts and large scale replacement and repair work, to painting, signage, window displays or lighting.
