Retail Revival managed the formation of Southam First community partnership in 2011 as part of an initiative by Stratford District Council to deliver improvement objectives identified in a review of Southam town centre in 2008.  The team managed the delivery of specific town improvement measures funded by the Section 106 payment received from Tesco in 2010, following approval of their planning application for an edge of town store. The activities included the establishment of a sustainable town centre partnership, business start-up grants, large events, rejuvenation of the farmer’s market, shop front improvement grants, and regeneration works to the town centre. Southam First continues to thrive.
