Shopfronts recommended for funding support

Two Woy Woy shopfronts are recommended for funding under Central Coast Council's Facade Improvement Support Program at tomorrow's council meeting.

An amount of $1375 is recommended for a concrete path to connect the public footpath

to an access ramp at 169 Blackwall Rd, Woy Woy.

An amount of $4141 is recommended for signage at 3B Blackwall Rd, Woy Woy.

Both applications were assessed as meeting the program objectives with all required information being provided.

However, two Peninsula applications are not recommended, being assessed as ineligible.

An application for signage at 35-39 Blackwall Rd, Woy Woy, was deemed to require a new development application and was consequently ineligible.

"The proposed works must be considered exempt development under the State

Environmental Planning Policy or allowed under existing consent conditions.

"Any works that require a new Development Application are ineligible."

An application for 237-239 West St, Umina, was assessed as ineligible because it was not within an eligible town centre boundary.

A report included in the agenda for tomorrow's council meeting states: "The Facade Improvement Support Program provides financial assistance to businesses and commercial property owners located within the principal town centres and where a Special Rate Levy is applied to improve their building facades and enhance accessibility to their premises.

"The program is designed to enhance the amenity, aesthetics, and visitor experience of our key town centres, contribute to town centre revitalisation and renewal, and improve access to business premises to align with the One-Central Coast Community Strategic Plan.

"The program provides dollar-for-dollar matched funding for the cost of works to a maximum value of $5000 per property."

Applications for support were open from September 1 to 30.
