Kingswood’s Labour councillors are promoting an event for current and potential businesses to increase trade and footfall in Kingswood town centre.
Kingswood town centre serves 12,000 people in the central Kings Chase and Woodstock wards alone, with over 300 businesses employing around 4,000 people in and around the town centre and industrial sites. In recent years Kingswood’s retail vacancy rate has reduced but there are still opportunities for new investment.
The councillors have been working with South Gloucestershire Council’s economic development team to arrange and promote a meeting on the evening of Tuesday 6 September. Their aim is to support businesses to serve the local community and work together to improve overall footfall that will help the area to prosper.
The event will be at Boswells Café, Kings Chase Shopping Centre, Regent St, BS15 8LP. Coffee will be available from 5.30pm, with an open floor discussion at 6.00pm. The event will close by 7.30pm.
A free recruitment service will also be available.
The Labour councillors say:
“We want to encourage economic development in Kingswood. Our small businesses are critical to that success, and we will do all that we can to facilitate them working together so that they all benefit from an increase in trade and vitality in Kingswood town centre.”
