According to ‘The Local Data Company’, which monitors 3 000 towns and shopping centres, one in ten shops in the South is now empty (happily, the trend is dropping).
However, we’ve just walked down Camberley’s High Street with a ‘click counter’ in each hand. As a result, we reckon that the vacancy rate there is 19%.
The borough council has been promising to make the road more ‘pedestrian-friendly’ for around fifteen years or more. How much further does the vacancy rate rise before the council actually DOES anything??
