This scheme provided support for local businesses to make them more attractive and accessible to customers. It aimed to strengthen business activity and enhance the physical appearance of the district shopping centre by improving the exterior of the commercial businesses.
Investment in commercial premises will help retain and create local employment as well as protecting and sustaining local shops and services which low income and vulnerable families are dependent on.
The shopfront replacements under the final phase have now been completed. The final 4 properties were located on Clare Road, Penarth Road and Paget Street. No further funding is available to carry out any additional shopfront improvement works in this area.
