There are 11 empty units up and down the High Street and Croydon Road – representing a vacancy rate of around 4.89% and although we have had an increase in empty units over the past six weeks, our High Street figures are still well below the national average of 14%.

Fireplace shop adjacent to War Memorial – new lease agreed with “Vanilla”, a pavement café/restaurant/bar.

Chessington’s garage – is rumoured to be reopening as another garage, the lease is not being advertised, no further details known.

Rather than shops remaining empty we would like to see them utilised as PopUp Shops until permanent tenants can be found. If you have contact details, or the name of the landlord or owner, of any of the vacant units, we’d be grateful if you could let us know so we may approach them regarding putting a PopUp Shop in their premises.
