Comment and News for Landlords, Tenants, Property Owners and those interested in the commercial property market
Neil Wild keeps an eye on property related news and shares his views on issues affecting property, real estate, landlords, tenants and the communities in which we work. Neil has worked in commercial property for 30 years with his property knowledge covering much of England. In particular his experience in Banbury and the surrounding areas such as Bicester as well as Oxford and the market towns of Wantage and Wallingford has provided insight in all markets including retail, office, industrial and warehousing. His work in town centres where he has represented many stakeholders to facilitate town centre improvements and support for town businesses has led Neil to become a member of the Institute of Place Management. Neil’s role as Chair of the Banbury and District Chamber of Commerce provides a thorough grounding of the issues of interest to local businesses.
Neil Wild, Oxfordshire Commercial Property Consultant appointed by the High Streets Task Force
11 October 2020
The High Streets Task Force, an alliance of place making experts, has appointed Neil Wild as a Mentor to help communities and local government transform their high streets.
Philip Hammond has brought a little welcome relief to the High Street with reductions in business rates and a fighting fund available for town centres. I shall consider the consultation on change of use permitted development rights another day.
