A new government department has expressed interest in the, soon to be published, Uppingham Town Centre & Business Zones Plan (UTC&BZP).

On February 19th Gareth Bradford, Deputy Director of the new Cities and Growth Unit of the Department of Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS), is to visit Uppingham to receive a presentation on some of the ideas embodied within the draft plan. The senior civil servant will tour development sites and meet local businesses, councillors and developers to discuss local thinking on how to move the town forward and consider how government might help. 

Commenting on the visit, Uppingham First Chairman Robert Wills, who with Deputy Town Mayor Cllr Alec Crombie, will welcome the important visitor to the town said, "We are very pleased that government is showing this interest in the future of Uppingham. Local businesses are working closely with community representatives and the town council to promote Uppingham and strengthen its economic prospects. The Task Group preparing the UTC&BZP has consulted the community extensively on what is needed to stimulate economic growth and sustain its vibrant town centre. We look forward to sharing their ideas with our visitor"
