The Future High Streets Forum, a group of stakeholders and experts convened by Government in 2013 to advise on and champion policies to support high streets and town centres, has commissioned an evidence review on the issues affecting high street performance and competitiveness, carried out by the University of Southampton and co-funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). As part of this a guide to the evidence for policymakers and practitioners has been produced, published in July 2014. This briefing summarises the guide and offers brief commentary on related developments and potential next steps for national town centre policy.
This briefing is relevant to councillors and officers across all areas and all tiers of local government, particularly those involved with planning and economic development.
