The scheme will provide grants to businesses, property owners and investors to improve building frontages, bring unused floorspace back into use and facilitate new business startup/ expansion proposals.
Grants will cover up to 50% of the total project costs, helping to overcome barriers which have prevented private sector investment in the street. The scheme will unlock the full potential of Whitefriargate, encouraging new leisure, boutique retail and food & beverage uses that will ensure that the street remains sustainable over the long term.
