Did you know? Vacant shops cost London’s economy an estimated £350 million (through loss of business rates, loss of earnings and the subsequent cost of unemployment and job seekers allowance), according to the Greater London Authority. They can also discourage new investment and create a feeling of neglect putting off consumers from visiting.
That’s why we are embarking on a project to transform the vacant units in Kingston town centre to support economic growth, encourage innovation and diversity and create a vibrant place to live, work and play.
We want to help our local businesses recover from the impact of COVID-19 by making our town attractive for new investors, visitors and the local community.
We want to collaborate with our local community and businesses to discover new opportunities through the use of vacant units creating a buzz and vibrancy in our town centre. Whether you’re a landlord or agent with a vacant unit looking to find out how we can support you or if your a small local business or community group looking for some space, please drop us a line email@example.com.
