Empty shop units could be filled in Otley if a new campaign proves successful.

Although business leaders say the number of unoccupied premises in the market town is currently low, they want to find proactive ways of attracting new business.

Throughout August, talks will be held with landlords and letting agents.

A poll will also be carried out among shoppers through Facebook and Twitter to find out what sort of shops they want.

Steph Lee, Chair of Otley BID, told Stray FM: "It's always the goal to make us something different and find something that sets us apart from the other market towns in the area.

"The more people we can bring into the town, the more the businesses will do good trade."
