Invest in the City Centre which has the highest footfall in the District.

The City Centre Business Growth Scheme aims to support new and/or existing businesses to create jobs and stimulate investment and growth in the City Centre Growth Zone.

The Growth Zone provides an unrivalled offer to businesses and through financial and professional support, the confidence to expand.

The scheme consists of two main elements:

  1. Business Rate Rebate Scheme

Business Rate rebate incentives for eligible businesses are available within the growth zone, worth up to £16k per job. Businesses must be creating new jobs through expansion or relocation.

  1. Priority Streets Scheme

This is a targeted scheme for specified streets offering a package of assistance to include property improvements and/or the purchase of machinery or equipment along with a business rate rebate (subject to job creation). The scheme is available to property owners or tenants in identified Priority Streets wanting to bring vacant ground floor premises with an identified end user back into commercial use.
