Since 2010, the Government has helped create over 360 town teams, and given over £18 million to towns - funding successful initiatives such as “Love your Local Market” and the “Great British High Street”.

This is in addition to funding streams such as the Local Growth Fund, Coastal Revival Fund and Coastal Communities Fund, which have each funded a number of projects in high streets and town centres.

The Government further demonstrated our commitment to supporting high streets and town centres at Autumn Budget 2018, where we set out “Our Plan for The High Street”. This includes the £675 million Future High Streets Fund, which will help local areas make their high streets and town centres fit for the future.
