The environment, young people …

The environment, the story of the town and young people are 3 key components. A programme for empty units could be done by a local by-law giving the local authority powers to occupy the unit – waiving business rates.
Empty premises not participating will need penalising somehow.
The BIG Ideas could include:
Encourage the local authority to offer an enterprise zone facility in the centre for 12 months – waiving business rates for 12 months and encouraging more new starter businesses, more non-retail activity.
Develop a programme of events
Regular markets
Cycling and active transport – leading to training and business opportunities
Space for young people, to be operated and managed by young people themselves
Colour palate for town centre shops / buildings as operated on Sandside
Inspiring quotes – positivity quotes – town charter from Renaissance – quotes from famous of Scarborough
Gateway to the town from the station
Promote the great collection and heritage.

  1. I would agree we need some regeneration of empty retail outlets and to encourage local enterprise. The idea of low rents and the abolition of business rates, albeit short term, would encourage business owners such as myself to utilise these outlets which at the moment require too much financial outlay for an initial business start-up.
    We have plans that are frustrated by lack of affordable suitable outlets in the area.
