The Trust worked with Stirling Council during 2010-12 on a pilot Façade Enhancement Scheme in King Street which involved the conservation, repair and enhancement of 6 shops and 2 closes. This included two lovely Art Deco marble shop fronts at 36 and 40 King Street and a former 1930s butcher’s shop at 15 King Street.
The pilot project acknowledged the important contribution which shopfronts make to the streetscape of the city centre and aimed to demonstrate different approaches to successful repair and enhancement of traditional shop fronts. Well considered design of frontages and signage, as well as conservation of traditional details, can significantly enhance a retail street helping to encourage vitality and footfall.
The Trust is looking to launch a grant later in 2016 to assist owners of traditional shops in Stirling to conserve and enhance their shopfronts. Please visit this page in the future to find out more.
