Great British High Streets Awards Launch Good Practice Guide

The Great British High Streets (GBHS) Awards Good Practice Guide, published last week, was launched by High Streets Minister Marcus Jones during a visit to 2015’s overall winning high street, Bishopthorpe Road in York.

The Great British High Street Awards 2015 sought to recognise that the high street is the life and soul of cities, towns and villages across the country, supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs, and offering a much valued social space.

The 2015 competition saw 230 high streets battle it out to be crowned Britain’s best. Nearly 200,000 votes were cast by the general public for the 21 finalist, proof that the high street is as important today as it has ever been.

The awards offer a unique opportunity to learn from the very best and continue to make our high streets even better places to live, shop and work.

The Good Practice Guide shares tips and real life examples of how high streets across the country have risen to the challenges of a rapidly changing environment to thrive in 21st century Britain, both for today and in the future.

It has practical advice and guidance for councils, businesses, town teams, community groups and interested volunteers who want their high streets to be the best that they can be.

The Guide is available on the Great British High Streets portal, here.
