West Bridgford Commissioners
Who are the West Bridgford Commissioners?
Three independent commissioners have been appointed to help steer the course of the local economy in West Bridgford, which has a reputation for a high quality, thriving and diverse retail and business sector.
The responsibilities of these independent commissioners will involve seeking the views of local residents, businesses and community groups with the aim of creating a focused, transparent and informed report to help steer the work and vision of the growth board.
The three commissioners are former Nottinghamshire County Council chief executive Mick Burrows, Tim Richmond OBE, an experienced entrepreneur and local businessman and Nottingham Business School Professor Kim Cassidy in supporting the West Bridgford Growth Board (WBGB).
Fantastic response to Commissioners’ consultation
More than 400 people took the opportunity to have their say on the future economic direction of West Bridgford when they completed the West Bridgford Commissioners Survey online and in selected business premises in March 2017. A big thank you to you if you were one of the people who took part!
The Commissioners know that residents and town centre visitors really value their town centre and green spaces, so it’s fantastic that so many have chosen to actively play their part in helping them work out a plan for the future.
They’re grateful to everyone who took the time to take part in the consultation and share their views on the future economic focus of the town. The Commissioners will be using the feedback and suggestions when they draw up a series of recommendations that will be presented to the West Bridgford Growth Board later in the year.
