The figures in our report for Burton upon Trent are a clear symptom of the economic downturn, and reflect the situation across much of the UK
UK (PRWEB UK) 21 December 2012
Burton upon Trent: There were 96 company closures in Burton upon Trent during the third quarter of the year, according to data recently released by leading company formation agents, Duport.co.uk.
This figure represents a 66% increase in company closures when compared with the same period in 2011. Net company growth also dropped dramatically, from 79 in Q3 2011 to just 6 in Q3 this year.
It is hoped that regeneration of Burton upon Trent will help kick start the local economy after a difficult period. There are plans to improve the railway station, refurbish the Market Hall and transform the Town Hall into an entertainment venue. Also in the pipeline are plans to renovate run down residential properties and build a Tesco superstore on the derelict Bargates site.
Peter Valaitis, Managing Director of Duport.co.uk said:
“The figures in our report for Burton upon Trent are a clear symptom of the economic downturn, and reflect the situation across much of the UK.”
“However, the redevelopment of the town centre and surrounding areas is a positive move by the local council. As the regeneration process continues we can expect to see company formations start to creep up again.”
