Jenrick announces delayed £830m high street investment

The Municipal Journal has reported on the Government’s announcement that 72 areas will benefit from significant funding as part of the effort to help high streets recover from the impact of the pandemic

Local Government Secretary Robert Jenrick MP (Con) said that up to £830m from the Future High Streets Fund will go towards delivering local projects such as improvements to transport infrastructure, new homes and the transformation of underused spaces.

He said: ‘The year ahead will be a big one for the high street as it seeks to recover, adapt and evolve as a result of the pandemic.

Today’s £830m investment from the Future High Streets Fund is one of many ways the Government is working to help our much-loved town centres get through this and prosper into the future.

The role of the high street has always evolved.

We want to support that change and make sure that they are the beating heart of their local community – with high quality housing and leisure in addition to shops and restaurants.

This investment will help us build back better and make town centres a more attractive place to live, work and visit.’
