How to encourage vibrancy in Saltash Town Centre
What can be done to improve Saltash Town centre? Would longer trading hours help? What about a street market?

Moday night at 1705 the majority of shops were closed and yet there was extensive commuter traffic coming across the Bridge.Woul;d these people stop and shop if the shops were open?we dont know unless it is tried.It would have to be on a town centrewide basis as merely opening a few shops on an ad hoc basis would not result in any beneficial return to the retailers.Posted on Mon 15/02/10 09:06 PM

This is a point that has been made by one or two traders, who have benefited from this passing trade from commuters to Plymouth. Shouldn't the traders try to open when people are using Fore Street, and not expect people to use Fore street when the the traders are open?Posted on Sun 21/02/10 09:08 PM

One of the CIC projects was indeed, to develop an evening economy. I think this sits somewhere in the middle. It would need a coordinated approach and good publicity. If this were to be tried I would use SALTASHCARD funds to promote it locally. Fore Street is quite lucky because of the traffic that flows through it, a real opportunity to cash in. This is one of the main reasons I am against the complete pedestrianisation. Posted on Thu 25/02/10 09:56 AM

I agree that it is the traffic that flows through Fore st.that gives it the opportunity for an evening economy,but to capitalise on it there must be easy parking and plenty of it.Iagree with Richard that pedestrianisation of the whole is not an option as it would result in creating areas that would not have customer flow and hence empty shops.A pedestrianised town square which could be used for social events could be used as a catalyst for the evening economy.Posted on Thu 25/02/10 01:19 PM

What would the traders want within the town? May be more choice and variety off traders? and empty shop's should be fill even if its on a easy in and easy out terms. This must be better than empty shops. Posted on Sat 15/05/10 07:23 PM

We are fortunate that in Fore st there is only one shop that is actually empty because all the others that appear empty are in the process of being let.Even the empty unit No4 Fore st is being used for a display and so in comparison with other town centres Saltash does not appear to be doing badly.However I wonder how many traders are trading"well".The initiatives of the chamber/STIG/CIC to increase footfall in the town centre must be supported but as most shops are sole traders there must be a limit to how many hours somebody is expected to work.Perhaps there should be a siesta period as on the continent but then trade cotinuing into the evening?Posted on Thu 22/03/12 03:46 PM

I have been browsing online more than 3 hours these days, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is lovely value enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Surely the retailers in the town should take an active involvement in ensuring the vibrancy as this will enhance their business and hence their profitability and yet there are only a couple of traders who do so.Jill at the Bookshop and Doug at the Jewellers should be thanked for their input with the Chamber and STIG but where are the others?Posted on Wed 12/06/13 04:49 PM

Saltash has such huge potential to become a vibrant, buzzing high street with unique shops with plenty of visitors - like Totnes! Retailers involvement in encouraging this is desperately needed. It's time to make a stand and support each other. Street performers, regular market stalls, Saltash events and so much more could bring visitors in. We are missing out on the tourists money too!

The Community Market has a regular fruit and veg stall, local plants, craft stalls, food stalls etc - and on the first Friday of each month there is a Local Produce Market. Pop in for a look!Posted on Thu 26/06/14 11:03 AM

I liked the live music at the arts festival, it gave Saltash a nice atmosphere, how can we get more of that???Posted on Sat 13/09/14 07:19 PM

I think Jill Male[BOOKSHELF}should be congratulated on organising the Arts Festival.The mix of Crafts and Music encouraged people into and to stay in Fore st.Hopefully the traders benefitted.Posted on Wed 17/09/14 04:53 PM

Frequently, you just appear like a robot programmed to complete the function routine more than and more NfJQpbcwWYEs than again If that is what it is been like for definitely some time, why never you contemplate a brand new job or an totally exceptional profession path?
