Grants

Property Reuse Scheme

Because of the high number of vacant business premises in the town centre of Bishop Auckland, a Property Reuse Fund has been set up to help bring properties back to life.

Owners or tenants can apply for matching grants from the Property Reuse Fund to help with the costs of repairs, renovations and improvements to premises to enable them to be reused for business purposes, including retail, hospitality, overnight accommodation etc.

Visit the Bishop Auckland Regeneration website for more information.

Durham County Council Retail Support

Durham County Council offers a wide range of business support for potential owners or tenants to bring empty units back into use, including grants, interest-free loans, and free retail-based training.

For more information visit the Durham County Council website or contact the council’s Community Economic Development team at CED@durham.gov.uk or phone 03000 267 967
