Improvement grants for Morecambe businesses

logo_bid boost

Morecambe's Business Improvement District (BID) has announced an improvement grant* scheme to spruce up business premises in the area. Grants can be used for frontal painting, street furniture or improvements that enhance the appeal of the business to the public from the frontage.

John O’Neill, Morecambe BID Manager, said: “Now’s a great opportunity to spruce of properties in the  BID area. The new Bay Gateway opened in October and it has already transformed traffic patterns in the area. This should mean Morecambe is a much more attractive destination for visitors now, considering they won’t have to sit in those long traffic queues. “In addition, the second phase of the Euston Rd. public realm works is underway and should be completed before summer.

The Connecting Eric scheme has been completed, the final piece in the puzzle being the new crossing replacing the lights at the bottom of Euston Rd. off the Prom. “We hope people use their imagination if they apply for the grants but we still have quite a bit of empty wall space that’s begging out for more street art so it would be nice to see some businesses continuing the legacy that was started last year.” The grants, for businesses in the BID zone, are for a maximum of £250 per premises and  need to be match-funded by the levy payer. Upon completion of the work the improvements will be inspected and, if satisfactory, payment will be made.

*Grants are limited for the 2016/2017 financial year so applications need to be submitted. Each will be assessed individually on needs and applies to current levy payers only. All work must be completed within six months of application.
