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.
The Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government announced the new fund to revitalise high streets and town centres in December 2018, recognising that high streets have been drivers in the local community, creating jobs, nurturing small businesses and injecting billions into the local economy. Yet the way people shop and use their high streets is changing.
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.
