In order to expand the Town Catalyst - Retail Incubator program beyond the pilot town of Dunbar, we need properties that fledgling businesses can use. If you have a retail unit on a high street in East Lothian, why not get in touch with us and tell us all about it?
Tell us all about the property and the rent you expect. If it seems like a good fit for Town catalyst CIC. then we will arrange to view the property.
Helping the local community
Empty properties don't do anyone any good. If you're a landlord with an empty property, you have the opportunity to help a new business get off the ground and find its feet. By offering your property for free or for a reduced rent, you could help revitalise your local high street, and ensure that your property is cared for and used instead of sitting empty.
The incubation period for each business is six months, so this is potentially a limited commitment for landlords. At the end of the six month period, the business wil no longer be subsidised and will be expected to take on the full rent for the premises and take over the lease, or to relocate to a new premises.
