Council fund to help raise the image of the town centre

Retail grants are being offered to independent business in Ipswich to help boost growth in the town centre. The scheme, which has been allocated £25,000, will see new and existing independent businesses in Ipswich receive Town Centre Retail Grants of up to £1,000 to improve the visual look and appearance of their shop front.

The funding is suitable for any works needed to fit out or improve the look of a shop (e.g. redecoration, fixtures, fittings and signage), as well as any equipment that will make a business more efficient.

We are committed to enhancing Ipswich’s vibrant and mixed retail offer and the introduction of these grants will do just that by giving local businesses the support they need to grow, as well as helping to improve the local environment and raise the image of the town centre amongst locals and visitors.

Councillor David Ellesmere, Ipswich Borough Council leader

All freehold owners and leaseholders with at least 5 years left on their lease within Ipswich town centre are eligible to apply. Full details on how to apply for a grant can be found on the Ipswich Council webiste.
