Royal Tunbridge Wells Together is a Community Interest Company incorporated in January 2016. As a new town centre management organisation we seek to provide effective leadership, co-ordination and resources to make our town a high quality destination. Currently the Board is represented by some of the key business leaders in the town including TWBC, Royal Victoria Place shopping centre and Markerstudy. For a full list of directors please see ‘Board and Staff’.
Royal Tunbridge Wells Together (RTWT) aims to make Royal Tunbridge Wells a high quality destination for retail, business, leisure and culture whilst maintaining its competitive edge over other locations in the south east. RTWT will be focused on increasing the vitality of the whole town, not on individual business or single sector aims and aspirations.
RTWT will drive delivery of a business plan for the town under the following themes:
- A Connected Town
- A Great Town for Business
- A Superb Destination
- A Strong & Unique Brand
OUR PROGRESS SO FAR
We have employed a Coordinator and a Town Centre Manager, both of whom are now full time. They are busy talking to and engaging with businesses all over Tunbridge Wells. The information and insights that businesses provide RTWT with help shape our future plans, if you haven’t met our Town Centre team yet, please get in touch.
