The Daly Male could become the first Oxford Street business to take advantage of the City's shopfronts improvement grants.
The City is committed to support high-street businesses, especially on Oxford Street. Introducing these grants to Oxford Street followed the success of the initiative in Redfern, which, along with our upgrade of Redfern Street, helped reinvigorate businesses, shops and cafes in the area.
Since the City started the program in 2010, more than 20 Redfern businesses have successfully applied for grants.
The grants encourage building owners or tenants to make improvements to a shopfront which, without our financial assistance, may not occur. They help improve the appearance of street frontages, lighting and security on the street and change the broader community's perception of the area.
The City's Community Committee will discuss the grant on Monday night.
