Shopfront Improvement Rebate Program
We had an overwhelming response for the Shopfront Improvement Rebate Program. We had 46 applications from businesses and services across eight towns across Bass Coast. Due to the high quality of applications we received, we have extended the initial program funding from Regional Development Victoria to support a further 15 businesses to improve their shop frontage.
The $2,000 rebates will go toward projects to enhance our Bass Coast streetscapes. They will include projects like updating shopfront displays, external signage, painting of the shopfront/façade, minor repairs to structural façade elements, awnings and verandas, installation of store lighting visible from the street and improved accessibility.
The Shopfront Improvement Rebate Program was jointly funded with $50,000 from Regional Development Victoria and $27,500 from Bass Coast Shire Council.
