In 2018 DCLG asked for evidence to document what our high streets would look like in 2030. Whilst many businesses and organisations responded, there was a distinct gap in the evidence submitted. Next to no one bothered to ask the public at large what they felt was needed to ensure high streets remain a thriving part of our communities. As part of our wider #WDYT campaign we thought we would set the record straight.
Using the Maybe* platform we set out to ensure the public’s voice was included. We reached out to over 300,000 people, asking what they felt was important in the future of our high streets.
Our evidence incorporating the opinions of the public has since been published as part of the review. It can be found here.
