Call for Evidence – High Street Task Force

Consultation opened on 25 October 2021. Closing date 06 December 2021.


The Executive Office looked to hear views on its initial findings and potential solutions for the issues that are facing our high streets.


Consultation description

The High Street Task Force (HSTF) identified the challenges and issues that our high streets face, and sought views on solutions to support our high streets and to contribute to the development of thriving and sustainable city, town and village centres.

The HSTF were keen to hear from a wide range of bodies, groups and individuals across society and the Call for Evidence was the first stage of an ongoing process.

After the Call for Evidence closed, the HSTF membership formed a drafting subgroup comprising of existing members, and, after considering the findings, has produced the “Delivering a 21st Century High Street” report with their 14 recommendations. Alongside this report, the findings of the Call for Evidence have been summarised in the “Call for Evidence 2022 Report”.

Both reports are available via the following link: Call for Evidence Report and Recommendations.
