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
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.
