‘HIGH STREETS FOR ALL’ CHALLENGE
High Streets for All Challenge
The High Streets for All Challenge was a call from the Mayor of London and the London Assembly for:
‘local partnerships to bring forward and co-design innovative high street recovery strategies and proposals. Each strategy can address common and local challenges and underpin the public re-imagining of high streets and town centres across London.‘
What does that mean?
Basically the GLA was looking to aid local communities in their recovery after the pandemic and are offering funding to help boost and regenerate key local High Streets. You can read more about this here.
Each London Borough chose one of their High Street to focus on. We are pleased to say LBHF chose the Wandsworth Bridge Road!
