Save our high streets
With 41% of our towns already classified as “clone towns” and another 23% on the brink we all know our high streets are struggling in the face of economic decline, out-of-town development and the growth of chain stores.
Civic societies are campaigning for their future across England and the importance of high streets has been recognised by the Government which has asked Mary Portas to lead a review.
If you want to stay in touch on high street and put your views into the debate then we will be launching a new Civic Voice email group in January. This is in response to demand from civic volunteers at our recent network events. You will be able to sign up and hold email discussions with others who share your interest.
Tell us know if you are interested in joining the new email group at http://groups.google.com/group/civic-high-streets
