Loughborough, Leicestershire (PRWEB UK) 28 February 2013
New research from company formation agents, Duport.co.uk shows that net company growth in Loughborough rose significantly last year.

Loughborough’s Town Centre Masterplan was set up in 2006, and is now well underway. The vision for the town centre includes easy accessibility for all visitors, building high quality mixed-use developments and nurturing a mix of retailers, whilst protecting the unique character of the town. Improvements such as these may have attracted more new businesses to the area, which would explain the rise in company formations over the last year.
