The Bear Flat Association has been working to see what we can do to improve and expand the range of goods and services available on the Bear Flat. Having talked to local retailers, a number of areas of improvement have been identified, including parking for visitors and improving the look of Bear Flat, particularly in the run up to Christmas 2019.
In addition we have been working with Andrews Estate Agents, who now have the lease on Rolfey’s old premises, to see what we can do to make good use of the space in the run up to Christmas on a pop-up basis, free of charge in November and December, as they do not intend to occupy the site until next year.
In October we asked residents to answer a survey on their retail preferences. The survey questions and results are shown below.
