The NEIC Programme Implementation Board has approved funding for a Shop Front Improvement Scheme which will be administered by the NEIC Programme Office and the DCC Central Area Office. The purpose of this allocation is to financially support the business community of Ballybough / North Strand to improve the physical landscape in which they trade in an effort to support sustainable business development.
Both Ballybough Road and the NorthStrand are important arteries bringing traffic from the north east of the city to and from the city centre. Ballybough Road is also the commercial spine of the NEIC Project Area.
This Initiative works to enhance and transform the aesthetic value of the street and create a more vibrant and attractive city neighbourhood in which to live work and visit. This includes encouraging good maintenance and presentation of buildings and shop fronts along the route. Dublin City Council and the NEIC Programme Office are promoting this scheme as part of a partnership approach with the business community to elevate the commercial potential of this street.
The objective of the scheme is to support commercial premises owners who contribute positively to the local environment and the image of the street and who in turn attract increased local and visitor footfall to the area. The scheme also seeks to encourage best practice approaches to shop front design, maintenance and presentation, and to contribute to an overall enhancement of this commercial street and the prime arterial route.
