Empty units are precisely that

Eastbourne spokespeople remind me of politicians, no joined up thinking and too little too late; making empty units look pretty is neither here nor there, they are empty units.

It is delusional to talk up the appalling commercial decline we are suffering. In the current economic climate, we have to be realistic about what a business can afford to pay in rent and rates.

Give these brave new businesses a chance and don’t be so greedy because it leaves us with boring, soulless phone shops, building societies, banks, charity shops and coffee shops galore!
