Local Centres Facade Improvement Scheme

Local Centre Facade Improvement Scheme

Beresfield and Carrington

In 2019 City of Newcastle offered funding to upgrade the facades of privately owned buildings to help revitalise the local centres of Carrington and Beresfield. The Facade Improvement Scheme was run in conjunction with infrastructure renewal under our local centres program.

Up to $4,000 was offered for each successful application on a 2:1 ratio grant, with one third of costs matched by the applicant.  The majority of funding was offered for facade painting projects, but other projects included cleaning and replacing timber, façade repairs, and one new awning. A total of seven grant projects were successfully completed in Beresfield and six grant projects were successfully completed in Carrington.
