The Enterprising Towns Event, hosted by Gloucestershire Market Towns Forum was a full day workshop open to all who aspire to create sustainable commercial centres within their community. The event brought together towns and larger parishes from across Gloucestershire and surrounding areas to share problems, learn about proven, practical, implementable ideas and solutions and consider new initiatives.
In the morning we heard from Chris Wade, Chief Executive of Towns Alive who looked at a new vision for our town centres:
Next, Alison Eardley, Towns Alive Policy Manager considered a collaborative approach for towns, drawing on examples of successful partnerships from across the UK.
In the afternoon, representatives from Bedminster’s Town Team and Leamington Spa’s Business Improvement District talked about the initiatives they have already been implementing to revitalise and sustain their own town centres.
