Have your say on the future of Fleet
Why we need change
Towns and cities up and down the country have been affected by COVID-19.
High street footfall is down 50%, online shopping is at 30% and many high street businesses will close.
Most recently the Grimsey Review: Build Back Better, Covid-19 supplement for town centres, set out the need for change as high streets are no longer shopping destinations but need a mix of business types as well as amenity space and events to attract people to a town.
We have published summaries of this report below and are interested to hear your views on what you would like to see in your town centre.
Whether you are a community group, business owner, school, family, group of friends or local councillor, let us know how you would like to see Fleet change for the better.
Email your thoughts – in writing or a video to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will share them here.
