To build the success of Scarborough Town Centre as a vibrant, mixed use centre for all stakeholders, investors and the community we aim to:
be the best performing coastal town centre in England by 2025 and the primary economic hub for retail, leisure, learning and living within the Yorkshire coast area.
increase residential living within our town centre by 25% by 2025
work together with public and private property owners and agencies to ensure the built environment and infrastructure exceeds the expectations of our customers and community by 2025
Scarborough Town Centre will re-align itself for the 21st century to become a hub of leisure, learning and living by building on its rich heritage, culture and traditional retail and leisure offer.
It will become a national exemplar through dynamic, welcoming and customer / community focussed activity and intervention.
This will be measured by footfall, vacancy rates, levels of investment, new business start-ups, stakeholder involvement and customer satisfaction.
The Scarborough Town Centre Charter
As part of its campaign for a safe and vibrant town centre, the Scarborough Town Centre Team in partnership with Scarborough Borough Council, North Yorkshire Police, Scarborough Chamber of Trade, Scarborough Anti-theft group, Scarborough Civic Society and the Federation of small businesses have developed a Town Centre Charter which aims to support the regeneration plans for Scarborough town centre.
