Grants Available to Rejuvenate Town Centre Shop Fronts


In 2016 Louth County Council launched the ‘Shop Front Improvement Grant Scheme’, as part of their suite of Business Incentives. Due to the popularity of these grants the local authority has decided that the scheme would be available in 2020 and welcomes applications. The Shop Front Improvement Scheme is available to local retailers and business owners in the towns of Ardee, Drogheda and Dundalk and it is hoped to encourage them to restore traditional shop fronts, repaint shop fronts and to move security shutters inside their premises.

Shop fronts are one of the most important elements in determining the character, quality and perception of retail streets in our towns and it is hoped to promote good quality shop fronts through this initiative. To help businesses achieve this, Louth County Council has also published a Shop Front Design Guidelines booklet.

Colette Moss of Louth County Council explained: ‘It is hoped that this initiative will continue to help enhance shop fronts in the town and alongside the Restart Business Grant and a number of other supports currently available by the Local Enterprise Office will assist businesses in the town centres”.

The Council would encourage business owners who are thinking about carrying out works to take advantage of the grants available. The application form (attached) is easy to complete and the qualifying criteria straightforward.

Details of the scheme are available on http://www.louthcoco.ie or you can request the design guidelines, application form or make enquires by emailing shopfrontgrant@louthcoco.ie
