Shaping the future of the High Street

Commercial property agents and landlords play a vital role in shaping town and city centres, as do planning consultants and those who make planning decisions.

The BID will be attending and speaking at the Cheltenham Property Forum on September 19.

The event is being run by Evans Jones, Chartered Surveyors and Planning Consultants. It will be attended by more than 90 people from the commercial property sector.  The BID will be sharing the benefits available to businesses coming to trade in Cheltenham and outlining how we can support agents in attracting businesses to our town.

Discussion will take place about the changing shape of the High Street and the necessity to consider a more diverse range of uses for what have traditionally been seen as retail spaces. Planning decisions have a high impact on the shape of the High Street so this is likely to be a topic high on the agenda.
