Bridge Mall Restoration Grants

By Sarah Wilson

At the start of April the City of Ballarat launched the Working in Partnership booklet.  This booklet can be viewed as a digital copy if you click here.

The City of Ballarat is committed to helping Bridge Mall property owners keen to undertake external improvements to their buildings to complement the changes planned under the Renewal Plan. This booklet outlines the myriad of options that are available to property owners and aims to encourage interesting, appealing streetscapes to attract people and business to the precinct. It also supports the reuse and refurbishment in the upper levels of existing buildings.

The majority of the programs in the booklet are available for the entire CBD, but the one of special interest to property owners in the Bridge Mall, is the Shopfront and Façade Restoration Grant (p12). This grant is underpinned by a $400,000 Shopfront Improvement Fund. Each applicant can access matched $1:$1 funding up to $10,000. The applicant may wish of their own accord to contribute additional funds beyond the matched contribution.

This grant can also be applied for by the tenants but requires property owner consent. The grant will be open until funds are exhausted or at completion of streetscape works.
