Build a large creative / tech quarter to attract exciting businesses into the town.
This will boost economic growth, create employment opportunities and lift the towns gloomy profile.
The creative quarter should be packed with quirky office space, co-working / meeting spaces, healthy cafes and restaurants.
Incentivise business growth by investing in start-ups, giving them access to office space as well as the tools and resources they need to grow.
Incentivise creative and tech SME’s across the region to move into the quarter by offering attractive business rates and great deals on office space.
As smartly dressed workers move into the quarter, the towns atmosphere will improve, it will feel more productive and lively.
This should also help to bring the quality of the towns night time economy up.
