FSB Connect Dartford hears about regeneration projects

On 12 September 2019, I hosted an FSB Connect event at Basepoint Dartford, writes Simon Morgan, HR Director at The HR Dept, South East London and North Kent. We heard from Keith Longley, Dartford Town Centre Regeneration Programme Manager, and Jonathan Barnes, Project Manager, regarding the extensive Dartford Town Centre Regeneration Programme along with the plans to refurbish Acacia Hall. 

Simon invited a number of local small businesses to attend, and whilst many were from the area some attendees had come from as far as Ashford and Ramsgate. The insightful presentations covered progress to date, some of the small hiccups and delays faced so far, implications on traffic in the area, as well as the next phases of the programme which stimulated a lot of questions and thoughtful discussion. We are excited to see what difference the changes will make to Dartford Town Centre and for local businesses once all the works are completed. 

We would like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to our speakers and to everyone who attended! We look forward to seeing you again at the next FSB Connect event which will be on the evening of Thursday 21st November 2019! More details soon!
