Harborough District Council has worked with specialist designers to create the impression of a fully furbished premises, (in this case, a restaurant theme), in order to show investors what the former Lloyds Bank could look like for a thriving business.

This is the first empty premises in Lutterworth to receive such a facelift, although the economic development team at the council has previously carried out this type of initiative in Market Harborough and Broughton Astley.

If any business is interested in considering taking on the lease of this property, please email the economic development team at who will put you in touch with the commercial agents.

The council would also be interested to hear about long-standing vacant town centre retail units in the Harborough district which could potentially benefit from a similar facelift.
