UK (PRWEB UK) 5 January 2013
Maidenhead: A new report from Duport.co.uk shows a rising number of company closures in Maidenhead during the third quarter of 2012.
Between July and September 145 companies were dissolved, which is a 31% increase on the third quarter of 2011, when there were just 111 company closures. Net company growth also fell to 38 during the third quarter, from 77 during the same period in 2011.
However, it is hoped that regeneration of the town centre will help improve the town’s economy. Last September saw the launch of the Maidenhead Town Centre Action Plan, which aims to improve the look of the area, increase the number of shops and make it into a centre for community and culture.
Peter Valaitis, Managing Director of Duport.co.uk said:
“The increase in company closures seen in the third quarter of 2012 in Maidenhead is symptomatic of the difficult economic conditions throughout the UK.”
“However, the local authority is taking action to improve the town centre offering, which should increase footfall and attract new companies to set up there.”
