Robert Jenrick, Communities Secretray said:
The year ahead will be a big one for the high street as it seeks to recover, adapt and evolve as a result of the pandemic.
Today’s £830m investment from the Future High Streets Fund is one of many ways the government is working to help our much-loved town centres get through this and prosper into the future.
The funding comes at a time where the traditional high street has suffered greatly as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
