Bid to regenerate town high streets

High street - High street initiatives - SantanderCB

Rugby and Leamington are among the 33 latest additions to Business in the Community's Healthy High Streets initiative, which is targeting 100 towns across the UK.

The programme was launched in June 2014 and is backed by some of the UK's biggest companies, including Santander. 67 towns have already been signed-up.

Robin Foale, managing director, Santander Universities UK, and chairman of the Healthy High Streets programme, said: 'This is a great opportunity to work with the business partners and the local high street champions to transform your town and create a thriving, vibrant centre'.

The initiative aims to increase footfall by 10%, reduce the number of vacant properties by 20% and stimulate the creation of new jobs in 100 towns over three years.
