The town centre is struggling with a lack of decent shops, too many charity shops and not enough support for small businesses. The pressures on small bespoke businesses are huge and they should be given financial incentives (or reductions in charges) for the first few years of opening. The traffic management needs to be reviewed and cars need to be kept out of the pedestrian area. The outdoor market isn’t viable and needs to be changed. Use the money to bring in specialist markets, buy new market stalls, invest in local people to show and sell local produce.
