AU Consultancy featured in Times of Tunbridge Wells
TUNBRIDGE WELLS could wake up one day to find itself a dormitory town unless action is taken to promote the town’s business environment it is claimed.
Amal Uddin, who runs the chartered surveying firm AU Consultancy and is also a member of Grey’s Inn, warned the companies operating in the town are facing numerous ‘challenges’ that over time could cripple its commercial activity unless resolved.
In an interview with the Times, the consultant – who has experience in advising local authorities across the UK, including our own – also said he was willing to ‘put his money where his mouth is’ to establish a new organisation to represent the town’s business community.
“This town has been around for a long time and will be around for even longer but I am concerned with the massive changes being passed through such as rates, increasing car parking costs and the conversion of office space into residential.
