Supporting businesses

We want to ensure our existing businesses become flourishing and new ones become successful.

We aim to:

  • Bring the business community together – it is hard for individual businesses to be heard on matters that affect our town. Viva Port Talbot will be a strong, collective voice that will lobby on behalf of all businesses.
  • Support the development of pop-up shops – we will encourage the use of pop-up shops to test new businesses. This will ensure Port Talbot shoppers have a unique and ever-changing offer to keep them coming back to town.
  • Devise a subsidy programme for new businesses – our town’s offer will be strengthened if successful new businesses set up here. We will offer help and support to these businesses to get them off to a flying start.
