THE head of the traders' association in Tiverton is hoping the arrival of two new businesses in the town centre will mark the beginning of a bright new dawn.

Traders have also been buoyed by the visit of government minister Mark Prisk, who undertook a fact-finding tour to assess Tiverton's progress as a Portas Pilot town last week.

The new businesses in Fore Street and Angel Hill will specialise in Swedish furniture and items for doll's houses respectively.

And plans for a major change to the skyline in the same part of town also went on show for the first time last week.

Retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone unveiled plans to build almost 50 flats for older people on a site behind Tiverton Town Hall.

The company says each of its developments represents around a £5-million investment and that formal plans could be submitted by the end of next month.

The signs of revival have been warmly elcomed by traders' chair Cllr Sue Griggs.
