Our high streets are literally dying in front of our eyes. Yes, we all know the causes (Covid, Global Economics, Online Shopping) but a more disturbing factor is that nothing appears to be being done to address the situation. Do Councils and MPs really have their heads in the sand on this one? Are our local and nationally elected officials simply going to let market forces determine the fate of our communities? If so, they have grossly underestimated us – the people who put them in office.
WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT?
It is time for us, the general public to take matters into our own hands. We must make each and every councillor and MP sit up and take notice. If they want to keep their jobs, they must act now to sort out this mess and put in place a practical solution to help restore our highstreets to their former glory – not to go back to how it was but to build a viable future for our businesses and communities! WE NEED TO ACT NOW!
