Reinvigorating the high street

We are working with experts from the Future High Streets Taskforce, on a series of recommendations and improvements to help reinvigorate the high street, particularly in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.   

The council has also secured funding from the Future High Streets Fund, Safer Streets Fund and Safety of Women at Night Fund to make improvements to areas around Commercial Road.

These improvements aim to create new welcoming outside spaces where people can sit, relax and play, as well as take steps to tackle crime and combat violence against women and girls in public spaces.
