IT is encouraging to see the positive response to the Royston First initiative.

Now the hope is that businesses will become involved and committed to a scheme which could see at least £150,000-a-year become available for improvement projects.

It is a chance for Royston to set a bold example.

The whole concept of setting up a Business Improvement District is certainly a plausible vision, and as long as it is led with a sense of purpose there is no reason for it not to succeed.

Businesses will have to accept that it will cost them money - but at least the opportunity will be there for an exchange of ideas.

It is, after all, the opportunity to shape a vision for the future, where all can begin to realise their ambitions and aspirations.

It is a sensible approach and it should be blindingly obvious that it is exactly what is needed right now.

The project will need time to develop, and is obviously still at the start, but it has to be given the chance to reach the finishing line.
