Apply for up to £1000 to improve your Business Premises

Barrow BID are pleased to announce our new Business Premises Grant Scheme, which is available to Barrow BID members who are located within the Barrow BID area. If you would like to become a Barrow BID Member, please click here.

The new grant scheme started on 18th September 2018 and has an initial pot of £25,000 available to local businesses to improve the external features of their business premises. The money can be used to improve a business frontage by:

  • Masonry painting
  • Window, woodwork and metalwork painting
  • New signage
  • New windows
  • New vinyl decals on windows
  • New canopies
  • Heritage features
  • Improving outdoor areas
  • Lighting


The grant will fund up to £1000 or 50% of a project and Barrow BID have made it easier for businesses to apply, so we can encourage more town centre businesses to apply for the grant and improve their business premises.
