‘Next Steps’…!

Insightful and enjoyable day with Louise Welsby and the team at Buy-From this week.

🚈 After two and a half years of tackling #highstreet vacancy projects for #TheVacantShopsAcademy, it’s really helpful to take time to stand back, reflect on the journey so far and talk thru the best way forward.

🗝️ It’s been great to work with #property and #placemaking colleagues in the 24 locations we’ve been commissioned in so far (with 3 more to start next month)…

…but we strongly believe in – and we’re seeing the positive impact of – our ‘audit, engage, encourage, promote’ approach, and are setting out now to take that to every place where the number of empty units is too high.

If the vacancy rate in your town or city centre is in the mid – high teens or over twenty per cent, it’s higher than it need be. Agents, landlords, businesses, community, council(s) and BID where there is one, working together, can bring that down. Leave things be or have only one or two of that list on the case and things are more likely to worsen.

If that’s your place we’d love to hear from you…!

📸 Thanks for remembering to capture an image of the visit Louise ( I think 🫣).
