A fantastic scheme offering opportunity to newcomers to Holt. Its aspirations are simple:

  1. Reduce the number of empty shops in Holt
  2. Provide an introductory low-cost option for those considering trading in Holt
  3. Work with Pop Ups to make a temporary agreement, a permanent one
  4. To source Pop Ups that add value to what Holt has to offer
  5. Reduce costs to landlords whilst shops are vacant
  6. Provide one source of information where all premises to rent and for sale can be viewed

From time to time, vacant shops become available. For shops that are not listed, business rates continue to be a liability whilst the shop is vacant. This can put pressure on the landlord to find a tenant quickly and often an offer that does not add value to the town.
