Raising the profile of empty commercial premises, and the opportunities these represent for entrepreneurs is the goal of the ‘My Business Space Week’ this autumn. With support from DCLG and BIS, and an endorsement from Mary Portas, there will also be emphasis on responsible letting and ensuring entrepreneurs are aware of regulations around leasing space. Activities planned include a competition to find Britain’s favourite landlord, gathering case studies of famous entrepreneurs, and a launch event with Mary Portas and ministers.
