Other business opportunities could include a green business park for start up businesses which could encourage green tourism and support a barter economy and time banking. Residents feel that an open air street market could be set up in Goodwick Moor car park to attract people from afar and provide better trading opportunities, local jobs and cheap business set up. A fish market could possibly be incorporated into the street market as at the moment most locally caught shellfish goes to Spain and France.


Although the Market Hall and the Leisure Centre have been constructed to provide quality leisure and amenity facilities more work needs to be carried out to raise the profile of the Town Centre. Some locals feel that the Market Hall could be further developed to create starter units, while others believe the space at the rear of the Market Hall could be opened up to create a piazza and be used by outside stalls or for open air events and possibly an ice rink in the winter. Residents feel there is a need for more local/small businesses (like Narberth) which could easily set up in empty shop premises, creating more local jobs. Example businesses could include e.g. butcher, fishmonger, delicatessen, specialist outlets, “nice eateries” and upmarket serviced accommodation, creating a wide and varied shopping experience for locals and visitors. These businesses could be encouraged by lobbying to reduce the current business rate where justifiable as well as approaching landlords to reduce the high rent on commercial properties which has forced many new businesses to leave the town. There are mixed feelings whether the new Tesco supermarket in the town centre will retain and generate spending by locals and visitors. Many businesses believe the new car parking tariffs in the car parks either deter visitors from shopping in the town at all or cause more traffic congestion as people try and park on the kerbside.
