Reopening High Streets Safely – Fund Guidance28 May 2020
On 24 May the government launched its £50m Reopening High Streets Safely Fund. Councils across England are to share £50m of additional funding through the ERDF National Reserve Fund to support the safe reopening of high streets and other commercial areas.
The money will allow local authorities in England to put in place additional measures to establish a safe trading environment for businesses and customers through measures that extend to the end of March 2021.
This funding comes on top of the government’s package of support for business and workers during the economic emergency.
