Aid can be requested for projects that are being developed in the already defined redevelopment areas in Willebadsen and Peckelsheim.
Unlike the existing “home and courtyard area program”, in which, for example, funds may be requested to repair their own facades, roofs or courtyard areas, the new settlement fund is about subsidies that are public property. Are used on. That explains the head of the Office of Building Administration, Marcus Blaschek.
These include, for example, measures that aim to contribute to increasing attractiveness. It can be a flower planting or lighting for a road. It is also possible to promote street furniture. This includes playground equipment, benches and trash bins. Funding may also be applied for signs indicating local locations or companies. But also for conversion concepts for vacancies or competitions dealing with the future of local areas.
The state of North Rhine-Westphalia provides funding. This money comes from funds intended to benefit agricultural infrastructure and coastal conservation. The total amount of money available in the new fund is still unclear.
Up to 50 percent of fees, investments and material costs can be funded. The application amount must be at least 250 Euros and cannot exceed 10,000 Euros.
Blaschek explains that private individuals, but also companies, organizations, organizations or educational and care facilities can submit an application.
If you have any questions about the fund, you can contact the building administration office. Marcus Blashek can be reached at 05644/8860.
A flyer for the new program is currently being prepared. Says the expert, “It is important that interested people start the measure only after submitting the application and it has also been approved.” Otherwise, no funds could be paid. Even measures that have already been completed cannot be retrospectively funded.
