Rising Star

Three places that through hard work have turned around their high streets.

Dornoch

Through work to attract visitors to Dornoch off-season, training for local businesses and events to promote new investment, Dornoch has seen visitor numbers soar by 20%- many of whom were probably attracted by their new whisky tasting cellar!

Leominster

By working with landlords to reduce rents for small businesses and fun social media campaigns, Leominster is transforming itself to increase footfall and drive down vacancies. Markets, events and branding make Leominster a worthy Rising Star.

Stockton-on-Tees

With an award-winning programme of investment and public realm work, Stockton-on-Tees is shaking off its old image and transforming itself into a modern and dynamic town. Events, new websites and apps are driving up footfall and securing Stockton-on-Tees’ status as a Rising Star.
