Shop front grants

GYBC logo cmyk 347





Up to £3,000 grant from the shopfront improvement scheme from Great Yarmouth Borough Council!

BUSINESSES  within a designated area of the town centre may be eligible to receive a grant of up to £3,000 to fund renovation, decoration, new signage and/or replacement of historic features including lighting. Businesses must cover 25% of the total cost themselves.

Grants are from a fund of £60,000 made available by the borough council in an effort to make the central area more attractive to shoppers, residents and investors.


Applications close when the fund is spent.

If an application is approved, the business will have six months to complete the works and submit a claim form, with payments made only once works are complete. Before starting work, applicants must have obtained the relevant permissions, including any planning permission and landlord permission required.

Application forms, and a map showing the area covered by the scheme, are available below.  For further information, email econdev@great-yarmouth.gov.uk or call Economic Development on 01493 846431
