Torridge District Council has announced a new scheme to support local independent businesses with grants of up to £1000 available to help improve or repair shop fronts or other potential "beautification projects" within town centres.

The funding has been made available as part of the money allocated to Torridge under the UK Shared Prosperity fund, with a 50:50 match funding arrangement. Under the scheme the council will contribute up to 50% of a project's total cost with the business at least matching the Torridge grant contribution.
