Empty Shop Wrap – Sutton

Read the story

Sutton Council’s Opportunity Sutton initiative funded a “wrap” for a vacant shop in Sutton High Street which had the double benefit of promoting the Council’s Local Business Rate Relief scheme whilst simultaneously making a vacant unit look far more appealing.

The Local Business Rate Relief scheme will be running until the end of March 2015, and offers a 50% reduction in business rates to a new business, or a business expanding their operation, within the Business Improvement District boundaries of Sutton town centre.
