Council support for businesses
Mon 30 June 2014, 4:11 pm
A pavement plaque has been unveiled to celebrate the refurbishment of Ruislip Manor high street. Improvements are benefiting the local shops and services in the form of increased footfall and takings.
The number of empty shops has been reduced and the existing businesses have invested near to £60,000 into the shop front grant scheme. Lighting has also been installed on the railway bridge over Victoria Road.
Harefield village is next in line for a full refurbishment and shop front grants will be offered to traders in Oak Farm, Hillingdon, and at the bottom end of Uxbridge High Street. Councillor Douglas Mills, cabinet member for community, commerce and regeneration, said: “The improvements we have made so far have given residents a town centre they can be proud of. New businesses have come into these areas and more people are now shopping locally, which is a good thing for the borough’s economy.”
