Vacant to Vibrant Capital Grants Scheme

17 February 2022

Deadline: February 28, 2022

Belfast City Council are exploring the potential of introducing a two-year pilot capital grant scheme, ‘Vacant to Vibrant’, and are asking for your expressions of interest.

This scheme would commence in the Spring-Summer of 2022, with the aim to ‘incentivise both property owners and potential occupiers to bring vacant spaces in Belfast city centre back into use’.

‘Vacant to Vibrant’ would act to both diversify the use of currently vacant premises, and also contribute to higher quality streetscapes and greater city centre vibrancy. Ultimately this scheme will help to sustain jobs, and help create new employment opportunities.

Belfast City Council are looking to gauge interest in this grant scheme, and see what type of proposals will be put forth.

Please take a moment to fill in this Expression of Interest form to help shape the scheme and be a part of what could potentially be developed.

BCC are interested in the views of businesses, organisations, property owners, social enterprises and the cultural and third sectors.

Please note, completing the form is not a pre-requisite to applying for the grant, nor does completing it guarantee success at application stage, however, your input will be vital and is relevant to help shape the funding process.

Deadline for Expressions of Interest: 4pm on Monday, 28 February 2022.
