Purpose of the fund
The Heritage Shopfront Scheme offers businesses located within Hillsborough or Moira Conservation Area, the opportunity to apply for a grant to improve their shop frontage.
The scheme aims to support businesses, whose shop fronts currently sit outside of planning regulations, from a heritage perspective, and help businesses to sympathetically repair or if necessary, replace their shop front façade and signage in order to conform to the conservation guidelines. The aim of the scheme is to create a more pleasing environment by improving heritage shop fronts, resulting in wider benefits for the public realm and civic pride.
Any work undertaken must adhere to Conservation Design Standards and Guidelines. If an applicant would like further clarification on these guidelines, our Conservation Officer can be emailed at email@example.com
