Posted on in Business News, Political News

Jake Berry, High Streets Minister MP, has launched the Future High Streets Fund as a vision to support local leaders to implement bold new visions to transform town centres into that of the future.

This announcement followed on from the recommendation placed by retail expert Sir John Timpson to support local authorities in adapting to the evolving and changing nature that is the high street today.

Across the UK the urge to bid for a share of £675 million to transform local high streets into modern community hubs is in place.

The Future High Streets fund opened on the 26th of December 2018 following on from October's Budget and the recommendation of Sir John Timpson.

This money could help the high streets enter the new age where high streets are more than just shopping complexes but rather landmarks within cities and a growing community in itself.
