Wirral town centre projects might receive up to £10,000 in funding.

Wirral Council is offering organizations the opportunity to receive up to £10,000 to transform a town centre in the borough.

Two new funds have been established to help businesses and community organisations who are either based in or aiming to expand into Liscard town centre.

Local not-for-profit organizations can utilize one of the funds, the Liscard Community Grant Scheme, to create things like film, music, drama, or sports facilities to increase the town’s cultural attractions.

The Liscard Business Grant Scheme, on the other hand, can be utilized to make changes to the town’s appearance and attract more visitors.

Businesses can use the funds to make upgrades such as replacing fixtures and fittings or equipment, improving customer facilities, or adding security features to vacant or existing properties.

It can also be used to improve the appearance of storefronts by replacing signs, making repairs to the structure, replacing shutters, improving access, or repainting.

Both initiatives offer grants of up to £10,000 to eligible applicants.

The money comes from a £1 million Town Centre Fund commitment to Wirral from the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority (LCRCA).

Wirral Council proposed Liscard and New Ferry to win the money, which was established to strengthen town centers across the city region.

“These new funds are about appreciating the value of the high street and encouraging pride in the community,” Alan Evans, head of regeneration and place at Wirral Council, said.

“By sponsoring community projects and showcasing our independent traders, we hope to make Liscard more diverse and appealing to visitors to the town centre.

“We will shortly be presenting specifics of our Liscard 15-year masterplan, which will outline the town center’s long-term goal.

“In the interim, we’re delighted to be able to make these monies available, which will enable companies and community groups to make significant and visible changes in the coming months.”

Projects using the grant funding can commence from early September and be completed by mid-December.

Proposals must be well developed and be deliverable within this timescale.

The deadline for applications is 12pm on July 19. Applicants will be told if. Summary ends.
