BUSINESSS and landowners along Corrimal’s Princes Highway, Russell and Railway Streets are asked to consider updating their shopfronts.
Wollongong City Council will provide grants of up to $20,000 to eligible business or landowners to upgrade and revitalise their shopfront with applications closing on Friday July 7.
Wollongong Deputy Lord Mayor John Dorahy said the program to upgrade and enhance the city façades in Wollongong’s Crown Street and city centre was hugely successful, with 38 façade rejuvenation projects completed, including nine heritage listed buildings.
“Council has now introduced a matched financial incentive for Corrimal’s town centre. Corrimal is one of the city’s beautiful villages with enormous character and potential. We’re hoping that many business and landowners will make an application to improve the appearance of their shopfront,” Cr Dorahy said.
Business owners wishing to take part in the program can view the information guide and the eligibility criteria on Council’s website.
Applications under the program must be lodged with Council by 5pm on Friday July 7.
