Traditional Shopfronts Grant 2021
The Traditional Shopfront Grant is for local shops in Stirling to help fund repairs or enhancment works.
The Trust has a history of working with other local partners to support the conservation and enhancement of shopfronts in Stirling City Centre. The improvement of 6 shops in King Street in 2012 are examples of where we partnered Stirling Council to deliver high quality shopfront improvements.
Why are traditional shopfronts important?
Traditional shopfronts are an important part of the townscape and their appearance contributes to the vitality and aesthetic of Stirling City Centre.
In recognition of this, Stirling City Heritage Trust has opened this new grant for local shops. We are working with Go Forth Stirling, the Stirling Business Improvement District, to help target suitable premises for funding.
Who can apply?
The Traditional Shopfronts Grant is for local shops within the Stirling City boundary.
What is the grant used for?
The grant is for repairs or enhancement works such as hand painted signage, timber repairs, conservation of traditional details and reinstatement of missing architectural features.
How much is available?
Grants are available for up to 70% of eligible works to a maximum of £2,500. Additional grant funding may also be available from the Go Forth Shopfront Improvement Grant Shop Front Improvement Scheme — Go Forth Stirling
