Retailers applied for grants of up to £10,000 to improve their shop fronts.

The aim of the scheme

The scheme was funded by Rushmoor Borough Council and Enterprise M3 and aimed to encourage retailers and landlords to enhance their shop fronts, windows, doors and signage in a traditional and sympathetic manner, either through repair of existing traditional features or reinstatement of historic architectural details. 

We hope that the scheme will help businesses to create more attractive frontages and enhance the character of the town centre and make it more welcoming to local residents and visitors.

Next steps

During the applications process, we received a number of applications from neighbouring premises in Upper Union Street, Grosvenor Road and Station Road. We have brought these applications together as composite scheme and the contractor is on site implementing the proposals, which are due to be completed by the end of February 2018.
