Move all businesses from Freeman Street into and around Freshney Place with no detriment to business owners. Instead of 2 struggling business areas, we can increase footfall for all businesses by bringing them together and creating a busier town centre. This will mean less empty units in the main town centre as well as bringing additional footfall to the relocated businesses and the existing businesses in the town centre area. Then Freeman Street can be available for residential development and the new football stadium. Simple – 1 thriving town centre shopping precinct instead of 2 struggling ones.
