IN our campaign #SOSMorecambe to Support Our Shops, we pledge to do the following:
*We will champion the many successful independent retail businesses throughout Morecambe and Heysham, including the West End, Westgate, Torrisholme and Bare, both old and new.
*We will lobby the local authorities and the Government for help for our local independent shops. This help may include cheaper car parking prices for shoppers and traders, and cheaper business rates.
*We will update you on the progress of the various projects going on in Morecambe to improve our town centre and shopping areas including the Portas Pilot Town scheme, the Business Improvement District (BID) and the A View For Eric project.
*We hope our campaign will encourage consumers to visit Morecambe’s array of small independent shops and discover the wide variety of businesses we have to offer, and will also encourage people to open new businesses in Morecambe.
