3 comments on “Fill the empty shops

  1. The number of empty shops is very distressing to see. Lower rates and rents would attract new businesses, but if it is not possible to bring in new shops, the existing empty ones could be converted into low rental homes for those needing accommodation, such as homeless people. No one should be homeless.

  2. This links in perfectly with another suggestion about encouraging small independent businesses as opposed to yet more chain cafe/restaurants.
    Bring back small independent businesses giving the city a huge variety of shops.

  3. Too many empty shops because of high rents and rates, if these were lowered or there was an incentive we could secure independent and chain stores. Bring back the great British High Street.
