Shop front grant scheme extended

By Echo Reporter

SOUTH Dublin County Council have extended the application date for the Shop Front Scheme.
The scheme is open to retail businesses in South Dublin County who operate independently owned shops fronting public streets.

Shop owners now have until Thursday, March, 31, to submit an application under the scheme - designed to assist shopkeepers in improving the look of their shop front.

Funding of up to 50 per cent of a project’s costs to a maximum grant of €8,500 is available, subject to the application meeting the scheme’s criteria.

Grants cover simple measures like painting a shop front, replacing signage to even replacing an entire shop front. 
“This funding is being provided in recognition of the fact that a building’s facade makes a big impact on our villages and towns”, said Daniel McLoughlin, Chief Executive of South Dublin County Council.

Over the past two years South Dublin County Council have awarded grants to 12 shops to help improve the look of the streetscape of villages across the county.

Artisan Pantry in Lucan was selected as having the best shop front design of 2014, whilst Tallaght Traditional Barber Shop took that accolade in 2015.
