Detail

Our local parades of shops are key parts of our local areas. They affect what our local communities look and feel like, how we interact as communities and how our local economies are performing.

The Government has commissioned new research and produced this document to shine a light on these important parts of our communities. From our discussions with business owners, local authorities and interested parties, we have brought together strategies that people have used to improve parades of shops in their own areas that might be useful in other locations.

This work aims to:

  • set out the latest data on how parades of shops are faring
  • identify strategies that might help parades of shops; and
  • signpost businesses, landlords, local authorities, communities and other interested parties to useful tools
