Chatteris Town Council is delighted to announce that it has been successful in securing funding for a Renaissance Scheme for the centre of Chatteris.
The Council has been awarded funding by the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority to improve the town centre with the ultimate aim of revitalising the town’s retail area post Covid-19 by attracting more customers and more businesses.
The project is part of the Growing Fenland scheme and is an exciting opportunity to improve the visual appearance of the town. Part of the fund will be spent on re-painting and repairing the street furniture which was installed 17 years ago.
The remaining fund will be open to applications from business/retail unit owners and leaseholders in the centre of Chatteris. The money must be spent on refurbishment works such as re-painting, minor repairs and initiatives to improve the appearance of empty properties.
The premises, which are the subject of a grant, can either be trading as a business or currently empty. Applicants must pledge to contribute 40% of the total cost of the works proposed and the maximum level of grant is £5,000; there is no lower limit.
Business/retail owners with premises in the High Street, Market Hill, Park Street and East Park are being contacted and invited to contact the Town Council for a form to apply for a grant.
