There are also fewer vacant units compared to three years ago when there were 26 empty premises within the centre.

During the coming Christmas period, when the usual pop-up shops return, it is expected to have only three units vacant.

Yate mayor John Ford said: “The shopping centre is an important barometer for Yate. It is one of the more significant employers in the town and a major community asset.”

Centre manager Andy Lowrey said: “It is important that the centre is fully occupied as we approach the critical Christmas trading period. The independent operators rely on good footfall and plenty of activity in the centre”.
