We are now supporting businesses on key streets in Coalville improve the appearance of their premise frontages, with the aim of highlighting historic features, reinvigorating the shopping experience and boosting spend in the town.

Phase 1 area is shown in yellow. Phase 2 area is shown in green.
Phase 1 of this scheme provides between 50% and 90% grant funding - for improvement work like new fronts, signage, windows and rainwater goods - to property owners and full repairing leaseholders with businesses on Hotel Street and High Street.
In October 2016, we extended the frontage scheme to include Belvoir Road and Marlborough Square, and also to be open to other types of business - not just shops.
