UK (PRWEB UK) 3 January 2013

Sidcup: Research by leading company formation agents, Duport.co.uk shows that net company growth declined during the third quarter of 2012 in Sidcup.

During this period, net company growth stood at 13, a significant drop when compared to 28 during the third quarter of 2011. Company formation also fell by 18% during the third quarter, and Sidcup's UK company share also declined.

However, the town is soon set to benefit from a range of improvements that will revitalise the high street, making it more attractive to both new businesses and shoppers. Last year, London mayor Boris Johnson allocated £1.8 million to carry out a number of regeneration projects in the area over the next two years.

Managing Director of Duport.co.uk, Peter Valaitis said:

“Like the rest of the country, Sidcup has suffered during a challenging economic period.”

“But the improvements that are taking place in the town could help kick-start the local economy, leading to greater prosperity in 2013.”
