An empty shop unit is being offered to the community in Bath’s Twerton district for organisations and groups to use for services and outreach.
The unit on the High Street is being made available by landlords Greenacre Capital as part of their commitment to breathe new life into the shopping area.
It is hoped the retail space, which was formerly a café, will be used by local traders as a pop-up shop or by charities and organisations for workshops or drop-in sessions.
A spokesman for Greenacre said “We are really pleased to be able to make this unit available. We hope that it attracts the attention of existing or even new businesses and organisations in Bath that want to reach the Twerton Community.
“It would be great to see a newsagent or fruit and veg seller using it once a week or a charity like Citizens Advice Bureau or similar providing drop in sessions.
“In our partnership with Bath City FC we are committed to promoting Twerton and making the High Street a vibrant place.”
The available unit is approximately 1,050.sq.ft with a kitchenette, office and toilet facilities including baby changing, and will be rent free. The cost of utilities will also be covered.

For Your Information.
In October 2017 Bath City Football Club and Greenacre Capital announced that they had entered into a Memorandum of Understanding in respect of the joint redevelopment of Twerton Park.
Greenacre is a London-based private investment company that works across property, independent living and clean energy. The company works in partnership with governments, investors and charities globally to identify investment opportunities that are both profitable and socially responsible.
In 2017 Greenacre acquired the parade of shops on Twerton High Street, including McColls and the Co-op, and also a strip of land between this parade and the football club’s car park.
Greenacre and Bath City FC held a round of public consultation in April 2018 concerning the redevelopment of the football ground. The feedback provided at the events is now being processed and shared with the wider project team.
Detailed plans and designs on the redevelopment project will be presented to the public later in the year.
