<p>The town saw 88 new business registrations in May, and 86 new businesses open in June – the largest number of new business since 2009.</p>

<p>Peter Valaitis, managing director of, which produced the report,  said: “Kingston Upon Thames has escaped the worst effects of the recession. Our report does show a sharp dip in company registrations and a rise in company closures in 2009, but figures have been improving steadily since then.”</p>

<p>Mr Valaitis  added: “Excellent local facilities and its proximity to central London have made it a highly desirable place to live, and therefore it has become a highly desirable place to do business.”</p>

<p>Kingston First have stated that there are several new businesses opening up in the near future, including; Joules, Schuh, Foot Asylum, Las Iguanas and Tantrum.</p>

<p>Duport’s findings compliment July’s report by Experian Property Check which suggests Kingston is one of the top ten places to live in London. It seems that Kingston is a greatly sought-after place to both live and work. This report brings great news for businesses in Kingston, considering the country’s weak economy. </p>
