KEY ACHIEVEMENTS NUMBER 13: FORMING GOSPORT TOWN TEAM

Back in 2012, I helped set up the Gosport Town Team and secure £110,000 of Government funding to improve Gosport High Street. This came as a result of Mary Portas' review of high streets across the UK. Here in Gosport, the Town Team has come up with a number of ways to breathe new life into the High Street, including the Empty Unit Support Scheme which helps new businesses move into empty premises - meaning Gosport now has half the national average of vacant shops. There is so much more to do, if re-elected I will continue to push for more investment & improvements to our High Street.
