Suggestions to boost Ilkeston town centre:
1. More free parking, particularly on market days.
2. Return of the shuttle bus, initially between the Market Place and the bottom of Bath Street.
3. Good, cheaper deals for businesses leasing shops.
Make the shuttle bus a novelty item and promote it well. Ilkeston is a unique town having a Market Place on top of a hill, not many towns do.
This should be a positive feature, not a negative one.
