Example Case Study: Space Store
In 2018/19 the Economic Development team worked to accelerate Space Store’s progression to a permanent location.
Initially this included advice on planning for temporary locations before an introduction to our team at Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot help the business organise a hugely successful pop-up event over the Easter break.
This was followed by an introduction to our contact at Hammerson – the developer responsible for Didcot’s Orchard Centre to look at the possibility of a retail unit at the site.
From here, the Economic Development team was able to advise on a diverse range of issues, including change of use planning permission, environmental health requirements and business rates. Our skills specialist also helped Space Store with their plans for schools outreach, introducing the team to local careers leads and education contacts.
