Shop Front Improvements
Shop Front Improvement Schemes have been available around the district. Thanks to grants from South Lakeland District Council (SLDC) local parish councils have been administrating their own schemes. Due to additional funding the shop front improvement scheme has been relaunched.
Grants in Kendal are now available up to 40% subject to a minimum of £150 and a maximum of £1500. Please check out the grant conditions (PDF 1.36MB/2 pages) to see if you meet the eligibility criteria.
For shop front grants availability in other South Lakeland areas please contact your local Parish Council.
