Introduction

* A mix of activities including; the Concord shopping centre, mixed-use areas of local shopping, caf�s and bars on Uxbridge Rd and on Goldhawk Rd, leisure and entertainment uses at the western end of the Green, and Shepherds Bush markets linking Goldhawk and Uxbridge Roads. * The centre has been unattractive to new investors in recent years - and there are few national high street retailers. * The centre caters not only for local shopping needs, but also for a distinctive ethnic food and goods market, which attracts shoppers from African, Caribbean and Arab communities over a wide catchment area. * Growth in the evening economy with a number of themed bars and pubs opening * The vacancy rate of shop premises has remained steady over the past few years - slightly higher than the national average. The vacancy rate in the market has increased. * More about public transport: * New bus station on the Wood Lane frontage, improvements to bus network and contribution to bus priority measures on new routes. * New West London line station at Shepherds Bush, with interchange facilities to the Central Line station ?? ?? ?? ?? small business 1 Mudathir Subahi ...read more.
