Vacant Commercial Property Improvement Scheme
Ards and North Down Borough Council have been awarded funding by the Department for Communities for the implementation of a Vacant Commercial Property Improvement Scheme within the five town centres of the Ards and North Down borough; Bangor, Comber, Donaghadee, Holywood and Newtownards.
The Vacant Commercial Property Improvement Scheme (VCPIS) will provide financial assistance to owners of vacant commercial properties to carry out decorative improvements to the exterior of their buildings in order to encourage the use of these properties.
Commercial property owners are encouraged to apply for grant assistance to undertake external property improvement works to enhance the streetscape frontage of the shops and businesses.
The maximum grant per application is £2,000.00
