 Forum welcomes Portas Review, but says more work needs to be done in key areas

The Forum of Private Business has welcomed the Government’s decision to accept virtually all of the recommendations in the Portas Review, but said it has not nearly gone far enough in key areas.

Last year ministers asked retail guru Mary Portas to compile a report on how to revive the UK’s flagging high street economy, which is suffering from reduced footfall and high vacancy rates.

The Government has now said it will implement most of the 28 key proposals put forward by Ms Portas, including better management of town centres with new town teams, affordable town centre car parking, a town centre ‘first’ approach in planning and disincentives for landlords who leave shops empty.

Following the demise of the Knutsford Business Club last year, a number of individual members have come together to realise the potential of the club by working together to promote their products and services. They will all be complimentary companies and come with referrals from customers and clients alike. All have trading premises in and around Knutsford and will 'encourage business networking and referral business' without the need for monthly meetings. Knutsford Business News is delighted to support this initiative and will provide updated news from the group throughout the year. The first success has been the letting of previously empty office space that now provides like-minded individuals with a friendly working environment where each can offer their combined support and skills, while working on their own business. This opportunity only came about by individuals working together to achieve a solution to their workspace requirements and a flexible landlord.
