LET'S KICKSTART OUR LOCAL HIGH STREET
As your local MP, it saddens me to see just how many retail units are unused in Redcar town. With our beautiful beach and spacious centre, I feel that we should have better shopping options available for both residents and visitors.
I have no doubt that the Council's Towns Funds plan will make vast improvements across the Redcar and Cleveland district. But, I wish to build upon this funding plan even further by committing myself to improving retail presence in the area.
According to my personal database, there are over twenty unused retail units along Redcar High Street, despite the fact that such spaces within our town centre can currently be let for less than £500 a month. Somehow, they remain empty. Something needs to be done about this in order to boost the prospects of our local economy.
So, if you agree with everything above, I'm now inviting you to have your say. Using the survey below, let me know what you would like to see appear in Redcar town centre. I intend to personally write to the most popular businesses, based on your nominations, and invite them to take a look at what we have on offer for them here in Redcar.
