There needs to be a town centre redesign to make the area attractive. There needs to be less shops (we can’t fill them), cheaper business rates to attract in independent businesses, improved environment with more greenery and landscaping, plus some places to sit. Planning needs overhaul to limit pound shops, charity shops, card shops. Invest in the in door market and include small food trendy takeaway outlets where people can relax and have a beer and browse market stalls. Improve canal area to attract visits to world of glass and relocated museum.
