Funded by UK Government logo Levelling Up logo

How businesses look has a significant impact on how people feel about a place and where they choose to spend their money.

If you are an independent small or medium-sized business, in specific areas of Evesham and Droitwich Spa then the Business Front Improvement Grant is an opportunity to get free support from Wychavon, working in partnership with our local Place Boards, to upgrade your premises.

Grants of between £500 and £10,000 are available to apply for. You will be expected to fund 50% of the cost of any project from your own funds.

Existing businesses, new start-ups and property owners of occupied and empty units can apply.

The scheme is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, as part of our commitment to supporting our town centres.

Why apply for a Business Front Improvement Grant?

Applying for a Business Front Improvement Grant means:

  • You will receive significant support to improve your building or frontage.
  • You will be helping improve the way people feel about the place you do business in, which could help to increase footfall and provide more opportunities to make sales.
  • Property owners can make improvements which will increase the value of your premises.
  • The support can be used to help bring an empty unit back into use.
  • Your improvements could help encourage other investment into the town, benefitting everyone.
  • We can showcase the town’s historic architecture and character.

Please read the eligibility criteria and terms and conditions before making an application.
