High street health check to measure impact of betting shops and takeaways

A new study is to assess the impact of the increasing number of betting shops and takeaways in London’s main shopping districts as part of a Health Check initiative in the centre of the capital.

Westminster City Council has commissioned a study by the Retail Group to report on the city’s top 10 areas for shopping, from Harrow Road and Edgware Road to Marylebone High Street and the Tachbrook area in Pimlico.

With the results to be announced in June, the study will determine what, if anything, visitors, residents and businesses think is missing in each area and provide information for new strategies for Westminster’s shopping destinations.

Cllr Robert Davis, deputy leader of Westminster City Council, said: "Health checks play a vital role in deciding the council’s core strategy for local areas which are important to our heritage, to our residents and importantly allows the council to plan ahead."

Cllr Daniel Astaire, Westminster City Council cabinet member for business, added: "It is important that councils are not complacent as High Streets are the lifeblood of the British economy."
