Bristol City Council: Funding available for Empty Shops Initiative.

February 23, 2010

Empty Shops and Promotion Initiative (round 2)

Bristol City Council has received funding from the Department of Communities and Local Government to encourage the ‘temporary’ use of empty shops during the recession.

The Council is now inviting organisations (arts-based organisations, community groups or registered charities) to bid for funding to support projects, which bring empty shops into ‘temporary’ use or promote the Place Management areas.  The Place Management areas are Ashley Road/Grosvenor Road, Stokes Croft, Gainsborough Square (Lockleaze), Avonmouth, Ridingleaze, Shirehampton and Bedminster.

BELOW ARE THE THREE DOCUMENTS THAT YOU WILL NEED TO GUIDE YOU SHOULD YOU WISH TO MAKE A BID.

Please note that the bids will normally be for sums between £1, 000 and £2,000.

    Hi, I am just writing to enquire if this empty shops initiative is still applicable today? If so, is there a current deadline. I am an artist in Bristol, extremely keen to set up an artist-led space in an available empty space.

    Look forward to hearing from you,

    Nicole Ward.
