Good Practice Guide

The Great British High Street Awards celebrates the high street as 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 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.

This document 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.

We would encourage everyone to consider how they could implement some, or all, of the suggestions in this document and demonstrate the same local leadership and civic pride to help ensure that their local high street stays at the heart of its community for years to come.
