A Plan to Reshape our Economy: Pledge #626 October 2020
Covid-19 has had a significant effect on our places, hastening and amplifying challenges such as the growth of online shopping whilst simultaneously cutting foot fall. High street footfall declined by 60% nationally at the start of lockdown.
All our High Streets, City & Town Centres are greener, fairer, stronger.
- Repurpose high street, city and town centre buildings
- Co-ordinated programme of support and assistance for our High Streets, city and town centres
- Establish a York and North Yorkshire High Street Network
Reshaping our town and city centres.
Work to deliver this pledge has already begun. In their response to the pandemic, investment decisions and plans for the future, places, businesses, and organisations across the region are already reshaping towards a greener, fairer, stronger future.
