Stroud Town needs a mix of retail, office, workshop and hospitality spaces in the town centre.

What opportunities are there for improving the retail attractiveness of the town?

We need to assess the potential economic benefits for Stroud from the canal regeneration and the doubling of the train line and weigh up the possible benefits arising from any current economic proposals for the town.
