Ashfield’s retail entrepreneurs are being given a helping hand by Ashfield District Council thanks to the launch of a new funding scheme.

People who are looking to run their new business within the Ashfield district could qualify for a grant from Ashfield District Council to help them set up a stall or shop.  The cash will be available to businesses that have been trading less than 12 months and that are thinking of occupying a vacant shop within Ashfield, a market stall within the Idlewells Indoor Market, or an outdoor market stall in Sutton, Kirkby or Hucknall.

Councillor Jim Aspinall, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration, Community Well-being and Planning at Ashfield District Council said: “This is a really good opportunity for people to access grant funding to help them set up their new business.  It also means that as a result of the funding, vacant shops will be occupied, and the indoor and outdoor market stalls potentially enjoying a higher occupancy rate.  This is the support individuals are looking for to help them on their way to building a successful business.  The scheme has the opportunity to get vacant units and market stalls over the three towns occupied creating a vibrant, busy environment for shoppers and traders.”
