Deeside street enhancement scheme

Published: 30/09/2014

Grants to improve the external appearance of shops and commercial premises within the Deeside town centres of Connah’s Quay, Garden City, Shotton and Queensferry are being made available through Flintshire County Council. The Deeside street frontage enhancement grant scheme is funded by the Welsh Government Vibrant and Viable Places programme which allocates money to regenerate counties across Wales. The scheme provides grants for property owners and tenants to refurbish shop fronts and commercial building frontages as an important step towards enhancing the local shopping and trading experience in the Deeside town centres. Councillor Derek Butler, Flintshire County Councils cabinet member for Economic Development said: “The programme recognises the important role that town centres and shopping areas play in the life of the County. An attractive street which is well-designed and well-managed can improve the vibrancy and viability of Deeside’s town centres and encourage other investment into the areas.” A maximum grant of up to £15,000 per property is available, with the grant funding available up to 50 per cent of the total cost of the improvements. Further information and detail guidance notes can be obtained by contacting Flintshire County Council on 01352 703223.
