The Town Council’s aim for Corsham, when it comes to Business and the Economy (a theme from the Strategic Plan 2022-2026) is to ensure a thriving and successful town centre and offer as much support as we can to local businesses.
Our objectives in meeting that aim are:
- To prioritise the vitality of the town centre in decision-making, making it more attractive, active and accessible.
- To conduct regular business surveys and act on the outcome.
- To support local businesses through engagement and advice where needed.
- To grow Corsham as a visitor destination.
Town Councillors meet regularly with local business owners to discuss aspects of the Council’s work, including tourism and events and environmental projects. For advice, support and information, contact us at the Town Hall.
Further help and advice is available from:
