Kidsgrove High Street to Benefit from Relaxed Planning Regulations

Kidsgrove Market StreetCould Kidsgrove be a town which is able to take advantage of the proposed idea from the Government to relax the planning regulations, allowing new businesses to open up in empty Kidsgrove shops without the current detailed planning regulations?

Under the proposals from the Government Kidsgrove could see “pop up” shops opening on a temporary basis (maximum 2 years) which would not only encourage business and investment in Kidsgrove but also make use of the currently empty stores.

This new legislation is a plan from the Government to encourage new businesses into town centres like Kidsgrove. It has caused debate thought as some people are fearful that this regulation will make it easier for more bookmarkers and takeaways to open in town centres like Kidsgrove. If it was to encourage more businesses in Kidsgrove then is would sure to be topical as some Kidsgrove residents feel the town centre is currently over populated by such businesses.

This could be a good positive move for town centres like Kidsgrove. We shall wait in anticipation should anything come of these proposals.
