Answer for High Street Fund

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Organisations across London are being encouraged to apply for the High Street Fund, through direct conversations with council officers and other delivery partners including BIDS. These groups were also engaged throughout the summer at the dedicated 'High Street Conversation' workshops. The communications programme includes an email newsletter to our High Street Network (including council officers, consultants, business and community groups), the City Hall blog, Twitter and the press, including the Londonist. We are in close discussion with officers from Brent and Harrow Council about their bids and are supporting scoping of borough, businesses and community-led bids with our Specialist Assistance Team, a panel of consultants with expertise in high street regeneration.
