Details

This report contains the recommendations of the High Streets Expert Panel which was established by the High Streets Minister Jake Berry MP in July 2018.

The panel, chaired by Sir John Timpson, were asked to diagnose the issues facing our high streets and town centres. They were then asked to advise on the best practical measures that central government can take to help.

The panel’s recommendations cover 3 areas: the Town Centre Task Force; the Future High Streets Fund; and short term measures to help high streets and town centres.

We have also published the report ‘High Street 2030: Achieving Change’ by the Institute of Place Management which was commissioned to run 5 workshops to collect evidence to support the development of high street and town centre policy.
