  • Telfordian to the core - Shropshire Business Today
    Mr Wright describes himself as a child of the new town having been born in 1966 at Wellington Cottage Hospital My parents chose to live in Telford because of the opportunity presenting itself in new housing a new environment I grew up alongside the new town so I suppose you could say I too was Made in Shropshire Work continues on the Southwater development But he acknowledges that the development and redevelopment of Telford is far from finished pointing to the continuing regeneration of the 60s and 70s housing estates and after a series of changes of ownership the creation of one of Shropshire s biggest landlords and employers the Wrekin Housing Trust The MP observed that the nature of Telford had changed in the 1980s with the decline of heavy industry but stressed that manufacturing industry was still a major player highlighting companies such as Aga as a real success story for the town The Southwater development will extend the life of the centre in terms of the hours people spend there offering a full day out rather than just a shopping trip He went on Among the best things that happened in the 1980s in many ways were the creation of the enterprise zone and the building of the M54 which gave the town the link that it needed Previously all the industrial traffic had to use the old A5 The motorway link was crucially important in driving the economy forward We had some big companies move to Telford on the back of the enterprise zone and the type of jobs on offer changed in large part to light industry Mr Wright said the decision by Ricoh to establish its European headquarters in the town was an excellent example of how a company could not only become a big employer but in partnership with the local authority become involved with the local community and lead recycling initiatives He said that while the older big employers in the town were still very important there was now a proliferation of small and medium sized businesses employing between five or 10 people and 80 90 or 100 workers Our economy is very reliant on those types of enterprise and they are doing a great job said Mr Wright We have a very good record in creating new companies It shows that we are an enterprising bunch It is no good us thinking any more that some global corporation is going to land on our doorstep The future success of the local economy is going to be based on enterprising individuals creating small businesses and becoming engineers of economic growth said the MP And at the top of his list for assisting small businesses would be a cut in business rates If individual private enterprise is vital for the future Mr Wright is also in no doubt about the importance of the public sector in providing jobs or in paving the way for job creation A high proportion of private sector jobs

  • Home thoughts from abroad - Shropshire Business Today
    homes build more houses and adjust the Help to Buy scheme All three moves could help take this country s housing market off the boil while ensuring long term growth the commission says Naturally Dave has promised to look at the recommendations with interest official talk for chucking them into the nearest bin while trying not to rupture oneself with laughter Quite simply we are in a political climate where the credibility of the EU is at an all time low With the possible exception of Tony Blair being elected its president it is difficult to see how the European experiment could sink any lower in many people s eyes But with that comes the risk that sensible advice gets given the boot without proper consideration just because it has come from Brussels It is beyond doubt that this country cannot afford a new housing bubble Time and time again we have seen the economy stop and start on the back of our devotion to the property market and each time we see another bubble forming we forget the painful lessons of the past And if it is not now painfully obvious to all and sundry that we need more houses it is difficult to know when it ever will be Trouble is nobody wants the new builds next to them But at some point and it is starting to look sooner rather than later interest rates will have to rise to combat the bubble and each and every one of us will be reminded of life as it used to be with rising bills financial uncertainty and the never ending worry of where the increases might lead To put ourselves in that position because we are too proud to listen to advice just because it comes from Europe would
