Emerging themes – A market place of ideas…

Park BandstandOne of the themes emerging strongly from the consultation is the value placed on Horsham as a market town.

It is evident that the world of work is changing and will continue to change as the Internet spreads further into our lives- we believe that the existing successful digital business based in Horsham can be built upon to develop Horsham as a digital hub, Its attractive environment, tree-lined streets and cafe culture provide a good location for business.
