"Our aim is to make sure things get sorted, and quickly. This is vital for WGC town centre!"
Chamber of Commerce secretary Sharon Montgomery said the idea of a taskforce had been aimed to "actually get things done", by "looking at things in a positive light, rather than just moaning".
She said: "If we all get together as a group we can try and improve things; it should be a real benefit.
"I think it's a great idea.
"If it does go ahead, perhaps we can get residents involved, where they can suggest things and helps us."
Nicola Kane, the borough council's town centre manager added: "I'm all for us working together, we all have the same aspirations.
"I feel it is of value."
