Keen MP brings business owners together
Brentford High Street have been bought together by local councillors and
Ann Keen MP to find ways of revitalizing the town centre in advance of
the long-awaited redevelopment.
In a well-attended meeting owners of shops, pubs and other businesses
discussed ways of making changes to the High Street. These included looking
at ways of providing extra parking spaces and reducing the cost of parking
for short periods down to 10p or even free, improving the signage so that
drivers and pedestrians know what's on offer, ensuring that more efforts
are made to rent out vacant shops and push forward the installation of
Meeting organiser Ann Keen said "It was a very productive meeting
and I am liaising with Hounslow Homes, the local police and the council
to see how best we can support the traders. Whilst we welcome the much
needed regeneration of Brentford it is vital that our local independent
shops receive the support they need. I will be working with all parties
to resolve problems with parking, lighting and the welcome return of the
farmers market to a new location in the High Street."
