The Façade Enhancement Scheme financially assists the owners and tenants of eligible buildings to upgrade the façades of their buildings.
As provided for in the District Plan Council works with building owners, through a specialist commercial designer, to develop a design for eligible commercial building frontages, above verandah height. The aim is to preserve the characteristic heritage of our business areas and to encourage building owners to upgrade façades to improve the look and feel of our commercial areas.
A heritage colour palette guides the development of a scheme for a building that is both aesthetically pleasing and sensitive to the colour schemes of adjacent buildings.
To be eligible for Façade Enhancement Scheme funding, buildings must be located in:
The level of funding a project receives is based on factors that include the size of the façade and the profile and significance of the building. The scheme includes a free no obligation colour consultation and, on approval of a design, a grant of up to $7000 to carry out the work.
