Scarborough Town Centre Groups

Town Centre Team

Integral to the delivery of the Town Centre Strategy is the development of a multi-sector Town Centre Team to drive the process forward. The Council recognises that it cannot achieve the collective vision in isolation and needs to continue to build partnerships with residents, community groups and local business. The Town Centre Team will work with the Council and its partners to lead on and, where appropriate, deliver projects and initiatives that advance the priorities outlined in the Strategy.

Heading up the Town Centre Team is a Chair and Vice Chair along with five ‘Town Champions’ who will work with partners to take forward specific themes / actions within in the Strategy.

We are a fully inclusive group and the only criteria for membership is that you trade in the area and so we are able to represent all aspects of this diverse  business community, from the fun parks to donkey concessions and rock manufacturers to fisher folk, all are welcome and all have an equal voice. We also have close working relationships with fellow organisations including, SBC, NYCC, Chamber of Trade, Scarborough Hotels Associations and the Scarborough Business Ambassadors.

Over the past 35 years the SBTA has been involved and or led on a number of exciting public realm and community support initiatives, including Castle Pride, the Sandside Project, FreeBay Wi Fi, we were co signatories to Kissing Sleeping beauty and  are also the founding member and administrative home of Heroes Welcome UK, a national scheme which encourages support for members of the British Armed Forces.
