About the scheme

Our shop front scheme has awarded grants to improve the look of independent businesses to make them stand out as gems on our high streets.

With a 20% contribution towards the overall cost from the business, we've invested up to £4000 for new signage, shutters, windows, doors and canopies.

We’ve awarded funding for more than 500 shop front transformations across the borough. This part of the Principal Towns programme is now complete and we’re not currently taking new applications for the scheme. However, for any enquiries please email us.

New business start-up grants for Goldthorpe

Grants of up to £5000 are being offered to new businesses opening on Goldthorpe High Street. These are to help people achieve their potential and trade to a broader audience with an online presence. 

The funding is available for new businesses that haven't traded before. Applicants must also not directly compete with a business that's already present on the high street. This helps to make sure that there's a better variety of shops and services in the area.

The new business must be in the Goldthorpe High Street area. It must also be willing to work with our Launchpad programme to develop a business plan.
