Backing town centre shops

We can be rightly proud of our town centre, but we need the right shops and attractions to support local businesses and keep our high street vibrant. That’s why I’ll work with the community to promote a ‘shop local’ campaign, supporting jobs and giving independent retailers a much-needed boost. Building on the success of Ilkley’s independent food and retail presence, I will be a champion for local produce and place local businesses at the heart of Ilkley’s future offering.
