City of Kwinana busi­ness grants

Kwinana Courier - - Front Page -

THE City of Kwinana is of­fer­ing busi­nesses in Me­d­ina, Parmelia, Cal­ista and Ore­lia $50,000 to as­sist with im­prove­ments.

Ap­pli­ca­tions for the City’s lo­cal com­mer­cial ac­tiv­ity cen­tre im­prove­ment grant fund­ing are avail­able un­til Fri­day, Novem­ber 23.

The aim of the grant fund­ing is to sup­port lo­cal busi­nesses, par­tic­u­larly in the City’s older com­mer­cial cen­tres, which over the past few years have not re­ceived as much in­vest­ment as some of the City’s newer ar­eas.

Mayor Carol Adams said the coun­cil recog­nised that newer build­ings, fa­cil­i­ties and ameni­ties had been in­vested in.

She said the grants aimed to en­sure that the City’s more es­tab­lished ar­eas were not for­got­ten and the City was able to in­vest back into those com­mer­cial cen­tres as well.

“The City will pro­vide up to $3000 per busi­ness to en­able busi­ness own­ers in more es­tab­lished ar­eas to in­vest back into com­mer­cial cen­tres,” she Adams said.

“We hope the lo­cal busi­nesses in these ar­eas will make the most of this op­por­tu­nity.

“The City pro­vided more than $38,000 in sup­port last year to a num­ber of wor­thy re­cip­i­ents who used the grant money to un­der­take a range of ac­tiv­i­ties that aimed to im­prove the aes­thet­ics of the ar­eas or sup­port em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.”

The coun­cil pre­vi­ously sup­ported projects such as re­mov­ing se­cu­rity screens and in­stalling roller shut­ters, im­prov­ing sig­nage, a new walk­way and al­fresco ar­eas.
