Success of Town Centre Manager‘s Position vital to the revitalisation of Bognor Regis


The Bognor Regis Regeneration Board is disappointed that the position of the Town Centre Manger will not continue under the new Business Improvement District Board of Directors. The Regeneration Board identified the importance of a Town Centre Manager and its members were instrumental in appointing Toyubur Rahman. The position was part funded by the Sainsbury’s Section 106 contribution in 2012 with additional  funding from Arun District Council , Bognor Regis Town Council, Butlins and the University of Chichester.


David Myers Adviser to the Board commented “ Toyubur, as Town Centre Manager, brought his considerable professional experience in place management to the challenge of improving the town centre environment for traders, residents and visitors.  He worked exceptionally hard to meet his objectives liaising very effectively with all stakeholders and decision makers in the town.”


David continued “The 50% reduction in town centre shop vacancy rates in the context of the national retail picture is a great achievement. This has been achieved with Toyubur  working in close partnership with the district and town councils to achieve considerable public and private investment. There has been over £2m of public  realm works which has been the catalyst for £3m of private investment as freeholders and traders upgraded their premises with improvements in both external and internal appearance.


David  concluded “ It is important that the new Business Improvement District Board builds on Toyubur’s  success and their new structure can continue to professionally revitalise the town centre in close partnership with all stakeholders”.
