Jobs, income and enterprise

In your report on the proposed business development unit in Seaton, you ask readers if they think it would fill a void in Seaton's economy. My answer is a resounding 'yes'.

In your report on the proposed business development unit in Seaton, you ask readers if they think it would fill a void in Seaton's economy.My answer is a resounding 'yes'.I have believed for a number of years now, following the loss of Seaton's industry and now more businesses in the current recession, that a business development unit would help generate not only small and medium-sized enterprises but also provide much-needed facilities for local home-workers.So what facilities could it provide:1 High quality serviced office space at reasonable rent, for new and existing business development.2 A training and meeting room with conference facilities.3 Short-term desk space with ICT for both home-workers and long- distance commuters.4 Business support and advice to tenants and others wishing to start up their own businesses.5 Offer a range of services to both its tenants and local organisations which include marketing and book keeping etc. The provision of a virtual office facility could also be included where their is demand.6 Business networking through a club and other allied activities.In other words, providing employment opportunities for the people of Seaton, thus generating income in the Seaton area through the development of skills, transfer of knowledge, and business development.The building itself should contain state-of-the-art communications and should be as illustrated in your article. Such a building would not only look very modern and be of innovative design but could also attract other enterprises to re-locate to Seaton. Irving RobertsSeaton
