Why we set Macclesfield Means Business up?
As well as being a forum to hold business events and share news, MMB was set up as a vehicle for change within the town.
Behind the scenes our Steering Group, made up of members, has been discussing how as a collective we can join forces and use our influence and experience to improve the town centre.
Macclesfield used to be a booming town, however unfortunately, over the years has seen the demise of shops and buildings due to a number of factors and now made worse by the global Coronavirus pandemic.
Despite many well- intentioned groups and Council-led regeneration proposals and strategies, there’s been many missed opportunities which has led to frustration. The town has so much potential, and has many things going for it, not least of those being a strong community, great heritage and a wide range of fine independents.
The retail, social and economic landscape is changing, we would like to be a part of shaping the ‘new’ Macclesfield for businesses, residents and visitors.
