‘Future High Street Fund’ support

The ‘Future High Streets Fund’ is the Government’s commitment to helping more high streets adapt and meet changing expectations, not just to survive but to thrive. With a fund of £675m, the Governments plan for the high street provides co-funding towards capital projects with the regeneration of town centres through innovative proposals around transport, housing delivery and public services.

People and Places Insight are best placed to assist applicants to set out the challenges and strategic approach required to regenerate their town centres, followed by the development of full business cases.
