Shop Front Grant Scheme

You can apply for our Shop Front Grant Scheme if you are an independent business based in one of the following eight town centres: Alford, Coningsby, Horncastle, Louth, Mablethorpe, Skegness, Spilsby or Sutton on Sea.

Priority will be given to the restoration and reinstatement of traditional shop fronts, in order to restore the character of a building. We have developed a Icon for pdf Traditional Shop Front Design Guide [3.79MB] which details some of the traditional features you may wish to take into consideration during the design process. You are required to make contact with our planning team before submitting an application. Please call them directly to discuss your plans on 01507 613176. 

You can apply for between £3,000 and £10,000 and we will pay 60% of total costs for the reinstatement of historic architectural details and features. The property must sit within an Icon for pdf eligible Town Centre [981.02KB], as defined within the Local Plan.

Please read through the Icon for pdf Terms and Conditions [451.72KB] before you complete an Icon for pdf application form [101.31KB]. Both documents can be found on this page. Please note the T&Cs have been updated on 28/11/2018.

If you require any further information or have any questions please email our Economic Development Officer or call 01507 613119.
