Funds to make Stromness shop front ship shape
Stromness town centre retailers can apply for funds from the Stromness Townscape Heritage Initiative Grants to help make their shop fronts ship shape during winter 2011.
It’s one part of the overall Stromness THI Grants aimed at restoring the conservation area of Stromness.
Under the Winter 2011 grants scheme, the Stromness THI team will be promoting the grants to retailers within the Stromness Conservation Area for up to 75 per cent of the costs of works to shop signage and shop fronts (maximum grant value £3000).
To also encourage works additional points will be awarded during the usual THI assessment process for projects which involve shop fronts or signage.
