Nowra CBD Access Improvement Programs

almost 2 years ago

Do you want to increase access to your business in the Nowra CBD? Make it easier for people living with disability, seniors with limited mobility and parents with prams access your premises.

Council is offering Nowra CBD shop owners the opportunity to receive financial assistance of up to $3,000 to upgrade your shop accessibility. Note: Applicants must make a financial contribution of 50% of the total cost of the upgrade.

The Nowra CBD Access Improvement Program is part of the overall Nowra CBD Revitalisation Strategy. The aim of the program is to encourage building and business owners to improve physical access to their place of business through financial assistance.

Improving access benefits everyone by enabling every individual in all walks of life to access shops, cafés, restaurants and other businesses equitably. Improving access will encourage people with disability, older people and parents with prams to be able to contribute the CBD’s economy and be included in the CBD’s social and cultural environment.

The guidelines recognise the program area as highly utilised for pedestrian movement and allows building owners and business operators to apply to receive financial assistance for labour and materials to improve physical access to their business.
