Encouraging small independent businesses

Money to go towards cheaper rent for small local businesses. So many shops are closing down. Also, towards grants for start-up businesses.

Newcastle market is virtually dead now – would be great to do something with that. E.g give out grants as a reward to small independent businesses / crafts / artists etc. to have a stall there. This would in turn attract more people to the area, create more of a vibe and make newcastle a “destination” place.
