The Fresh Lick of Paint Scheme is still available! Every year we have pledged to support 10 businesses with a grant to update their shop fronts; eligible items include re-paint, new signage, new canopy and decorating costs. Up to £500 is available to Colne BID levy paying businesses for improvements to the shop/business frontage – visible to public. Colne BID could issue a grant of up to £500 or half the cost of the external redecoration, whichever is lower, as a grant. The business is expected to contribute at least 50%. For example, on improvement costs of £1000, up to £500 would be paid by Colne BID and £500 by the business. In the case of over subscription, applications will be assessed by Colne BID board. Applications will be assessed on positive enhancements to businesses located in Colne BID area, contributing to the ‘attractiveness’ of the BID area under the ‘pride’ business plan objective.
