As a result of the success of the pilot scheme for the Building Enhancement Grant, Council has now expanded this scheme to a wider area within Murray Bridge. This grants scheme is a helping hand for businesses in Murray Bridge’s Retail Core Policy Area of the Regional Town Centre Zone, as shown here.
Council’s objective is to make the Rural City of Murray Bridge the focus of South Australia’s regional economic growth, delivering opportunity, resilience and an enviable lifestyle that attracts and retains skilled and innovative people and businesses. This grant scheme is part of that objective.
A Building Enhancement Grant of up to a maximum of $5,000 per application is available to eligible businesses and properties within the Central Business District and is provided on a dollar for dollar basis.
Examples of works that can be funded include the painting, renewal, repair and enhancement of building frontages, verandas, signage and more.
The Grant Management Guidelines outline detailed criteria to ensure applicants demonstrate meet Council’s priorities, adherence to terms and conditions and the use of qualified tradespeople with appropriate licenses for any work undertaken.
Any works funded by the scheme requiring development approval will be dealt with as fast as possible.
