This guide has been produced by Kerry County Council (KCC) as a guide on best practice in relation to shopfronts.
Shopfronts are a very important element of the streetscape. Therefore, they should be of a high standard of design and reflect the architecture of the original building and of the surrounding area.
It is the policy of the Council to preserve and retain traditional shopfronts that contribute to the character of Kerry. The need to change old shopfronts whether protected or not will be closely questioned. Preference should be given to refurbishment rather than replacement. Regular inspection and maintenance is essential to avoid serious defects and decay.
Kerry County Council seeks to encourage retail innovation, creativity, vitality and recognises the role shopfronts, signs and advertising can have on the character of a street.
