Participating Businesses 

'Making the best first impression possible to visitors and shoppers to the town by

helping provide a more attractive environment'.

This is one of BID4OBAN's Business Plan Objectives.

The Business Improvement Frontage Grant Scheme is one of several projects designed to deliver this objective and offers grant funding up to £1000 including VAT to any existing commercial business operating in the town which wishes to improve the appearance of its business frontage.

So far we have worked with 41 businesses, providing over £20,000 to local businesses, helping to improve the town for both visitors and locals alike.

Businesses are required to submit three written quotes and so far all work has been carried out by local tradespeople and local firms which also helps to support local businesses.     

For any further information regarding the Business Frontage Scheme please contact BIDs via email or phone 01631 569 915
