High Streets and the Road to Recovery post lockdown
Updated: Apr 20
Footfall is slowly returning to some centres but it’s a mixed picture for high streets up and down England. With the final step of the lockdown roadmap in England now delayed for at least a month until 19th July, high streets and centres around the country continue their steady increase in footfall and progress towards some kind of ‘normal’.
However, it's a mixed picture – recent hot weather has slowed down footfall and, as staycation towns benefit from an unprecedented boom (up to 60% up on 2019 footfall level), other locations more dependent on commuters to office space, international tourism, and night-life are not recovering as quickly. It’s an incredibly busy time for Placemakers planning a roadmap of recovery. The recent Towns Fund announcement just the latest in a series of new schemes and visions that will now need to take place on our High Streets.
