The scheme will be used to help increase promotion and awareness of the retail offer within the towns to contribute to the residential and visitor experience; promote the town centre businesses to encourage growth; keep the spend within the borough and promote town centres as multifunctional places and make them places to be.

A total budget of £40,000 is available for the fund.
