Answer for High Street Fund

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The recently published High Street Fund prospectus encourages applicants to use empty premises for flexible workspace, pop-up shops, crèches, cafés, learning or making space, to support growth and encourage diversity in town centres and high streets, under the theme of 'occupying empty space' (there are four themes: proactive stewardship, stimulating activity, occupying empty space, accommodating growth - successful proposals will show an obvious fit with suggested activity from one or more of these themes).
