Help with funding

Find information about funding schemes available to support small retail businesses.

We can help you source funding from a range of partners and schemes depending on your geographical area and business needs.

Targeted business improvement

We offer a scheme of targeted business support providing funding to small retail businesses in the county to use on improving premises. The funding is available to:

  • support new businesses into premises
  • bring back derelict premises or underused retail space back into use
  • encourage business growth

Interest free loan

We are currently in the process of launching an interest free loan to encourage purchase or improvements to retail premises across the county. The loan must be used with the intention of purchasing a vacant or derelict property or with a view to making significant improvements to a property.
