This Best Practice Guide looks at actions being taken in town and city centres across the country to support COVID-19 recovery. It highlights examples but only includes those that the High Streets Task Force has become aware of. The Task Force plans to update the guide during the next few months and would welcome suggestions and examples. Many of the examples in this document may be applicable to your town, city or neighbourhood, but every place has different resources, political landscapes, economies and people: what works for one high street may not work for another.

This guide is designed around the 25 Vital and Viable Priorities Framework that identifies action areas that are most significant for long term success.

The guide includes some references to commercial suppliers where they are working with local place management partnerships. The Task Force is not endorsing any such company named but reporting on the local arrangement. There may be other suppliers offering similar products or services and in all cases you should make your own inquiries.

N.B. This guidance has been created by independent experts on behalf of the High Streets Task Force. It is not intended as Government guidance and we have not sought approval for it to be so.
