MP comments on Kendal Riverside Ltd going into administration

January 7, 2013 3:58 PM

TF KendalSouth Lakes MP Tim Farron has this afternoon called for local jobs to be the priority after news emerged that the company which owns Kendal's K Village shopping centre has gone into administration.

Kendal Riverside Limited were placed into administration on December 28. KPMG has been announced as the administrators.

Tim said: "Jobs and investment are a priority for me and I am working tirelessly to do everything I can to improve the local economy so this is sad news. What is important to say is that the shops inside K Village and their staff are not affected at the moment. We need to try and find a buyer for the centre soon and make sure we attract more businesses that people want to visit.

"Many people tell me we need a major retailer like Primark or Nandos in there. I'd like to see if we could make that happen. If we could attract a business like that it would make a massive difference to the centre."
