Town council offers new business support grants to help Highbridge district centre

Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council is calling on independent retail/ service providers and landlords of vacant premises in Highbridge retail centre to apply for a new grant of up to £1000.

The grants are being offered to encourage new and existing retail/ service businesses and landlords to make permanent visual improvements to their shop fronts, including vacant premises. There is no requirement for the applicant to provide match funding, but applicants are encouraged to provide funding where they can.

The grant will be awarded to applicants who meet the criteria in eligible areas of Highbridge retail centre:

  • Market Street
  • Church Street

Improvements to external decorations will be considered according to the policies laid down in the Neighbourhood Plan, which is available here.

The application form for the Highbridge shop front grant can be found at the top of the grants page.

The Town Mayor, Cllr Mike Facey, said, “Burnham traders have been able to apply for shop front grants under a different scheme and we wanted to offer Highbridge independent traders a similar opportunity.  Independent traders are the lifeblood of our towns and we want to support our shops and brighten up our streets.” 

For more information and an application form, send an email marked ‘business support grants’ to: info@burnham-highbridge-tc.gov.uk.
