A Stockport property grant is being offered to businesses by Stockport Council to help improve their commercial properties.
Business and property owners across Stockport are being encouraged to see how they can benefit from a grant scheme offering up to £2,000 towards the cost of improving commercial premises.
Stockport Council’s Business Rates Off-Set Scheme offers up to 50% (up to a maximum of £2,000) towards the cost of improvements, to premises not only in Stockport town centre but also across the borough’s district and local centres (all applications will be subject to eligibility).
Whether companies are looking to improve their building’s appearance; undertake repairs or increase their property’s quality, the scheme could provide financial support towards this work.
There is only a few weeks left until the application date closes on Friday 24th February. The grants are available on a first come, first served basis.
Alongside this, the Council also offers a Town Centre Business Premises Grant Scheme, giving town centre businesses, agents and landlords the opportunity to apply for monies to help cover the cost of improvement work on their premises.
Both grants are being offered as part of the £1 billion Investing in Stockport work that is transforming our town centre and the ongoing commitment by the Council, which is supporting local businesses across the borough to help them grow and thrive.
Councillor Kate Butler, Executive Member for Economy and Regeneration at Stockport Council said: “I’d encourage all businesses to see if they can benefit from the grant. As a Council we want to support our local businesses and hope that the grant scheme can provide them with the financial support they need to make improvements to their properties.
“The grant fund is on a first come first serve basis, so I would encourage businesses to find out more and apply as soon as they are able too.”
