Health check aims to put Luton on track

Luton's town centre is to get a helping hand to improve its high street. It is one of 34 towns and cities poised to benefit from a programme aimed at increasing footfall, boosting job creation and reducing the number of vacant properties on UK high streets. Luton, which earlier this year became a Business Improvement District, has now built on this success and been chosen for the prestigious Business in the Community's Healthy High Streets programme. The scheme, first launched in June last year, is backed by many of the UK's most popular brands including Santander. Robin Foale, Managing Director of Santander Business Banking and chair of the Healthy High Streets programme, said: 'Congratulations to Luton on being chosen to be part of the Healthy High Streets programme. This is a great opportunity to work with the business partners and the local High Street Champions to transform the town and create a thriving, vibrant centre for the local community.'
