Town Centre Manager
Improving the vitality and viability of Oadby, Wigston and South Wigston Town Centres is one of the current key corporate priorities for the Council. As such the Council employs a Town Centre Manager to co-ordinate and facilitate the work for the three centres; Oadby, Wigston and South Wigston.
The Town Centre Manager is currently working with business groups in each town, so that businesses have representation when it comes to Local Authority matters. Currently there is the South Wigston Chamber of Trade and Commerce and the Oadby Town Centre Association.
The Chambers/Associations are non-political bodies, led by local business representatives for the benefit of each town centre, supported by both the Borough and County Councils and other local stakeholders.
Oadby Town Centre Association -
The Oadby Town Centre Association is a group of town centre businesses that work together for the benefit of the whole of Oadby town centre. It meets monthly to implement ways to increase footfall.
South Wigston Chamber of Trade -
The South Wigston Chamber is a group of like-minded business owners and representatives with common goals, which meets regularly in an attempt to maximise business conditions and opportunities in South Wigston for the benefit of members.
