Angela is urging everyone to take part in a Tameside Council led consultation to decide how best to fund measures that will make our highstreets safer as shops and businesses start to reopen.
The council has been allocated £200,741 of funding to assist with re-opening the high streets safely. This allocation comes on top of the Government’s package of support for business and workers during the economic emergency.
It will allow the authority to put in place additional measures to establish a safe trading environment for businesses and customers, particularly in high streets, through measures that extend to the end of March 2021.
The funding covers four areas of activity that can be supported;
- Support to develop an action plan for how the local authority may begin to safely reopen their local economies.
- Communications and public information activity to ensure that reopening of local economies can be managed successfully and safely.
- Business-facing awareness raising activities to ensure that reopening of local economies can be managed successfully and safely.
- Temporary public realm changes to ensure that reopening of local economies can be managed successfully and safely.
The community consultation runs until 11th September and can be found at
