Business is booming in Romford Town


Business is booming in Romford

Local business is thriving in Romford and the wider Havering area. At the heart of this growth is the town’s centre, with a large offering of retail outlets, buzzing nightlife as well as office space. The bustling centre is the largest in the Thames Gateway - and the fourth largest in London - attracting more than 25 million visitors on an annual basis.

A town with everything for everyone

With stiff competition from other nearby shopping centres, such as Bluewater and Lakeside, Havering Council and its partnership with Romford Town Centre has worked to regenerate the retail centre with a healthy investment to make it the largest in the area. With the shopping facilities complemented by wonderful leisure venues, including a host of bars, restaurants, nightclubs and cinemas, Romford is fast becoming a place people don’t just want to visit, they aspire to live in too. And with its convenient location in the Thames Gateway, it is ideally placed to offer a fantastic place for many to live and work.

Plans to accommodate more

As the town is attracting more inhabitants, Romford is looking to cater for an increased population, with a substantial amount of new homes planning to be built by 2020. Due to this growing popularity, businesses are looking to set down their roots here too and enjoy their share of the booming economy. While it’s an easy commute to London, many will enjoy the luxury of working locally, with opportunities available for those in most industries. The scope to work in retail and leisure is abundant, since so many large companies have branches in the town centre, along with smaller independent businesses. It may, therefore, come as a surprise to learn that 40% of jobs in the centre of town are in the office sector, allowing administrative professionals the chance to work on their own doorstep and forge rewarding careers without the otherwise inevitable commute back and forth to the big smoke every day.

A great place for entrepreneurs

Cited as the fastest growing location in the UK for new start-up companies in 2011 by the Royal Mail as part of it's six-monthly Business Barometer report, it seems as though there really is no letting up in the economic growth in the region. And with so many businesses already prospering in Romford, it’s no wonder that entrepreneurs have chosen the town as the location for their new venture.
