Gloucestershire LEP launches toolkit to help UK high streets

Gloucestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, the national retail Pathfinder LEP, has been working on a project funded by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills with the Association of Town & Cities Management and other partners to produce a set of tools to help high streets find their niche and improve their retail performance.

The Successful Town Centres - Developing Effective Strategies event is being held today in Gloucester to inform town centre managers, town teams, LEPs and local authorities of the work that the LEP has been doing.

Diane Savory, chair of Gloucestershire LEP, said: "In the current economic climate many high streets are struggling to stay afloat but they can all be successful by knowing who they are and how they can prosper. There are a number of factors that make successful high streets and our work will give people the strategic tools to unleash the retail potential of their area.

"We want our tools to empower town teams, local authorities, town centre managers and LEPs to build vibrant retail and high streets, working in partnership with retailers, communities and other key organisations that also have the desire and need to ensure high streets remain part of our daily lives."
