The £1 billion Future High Streets Fund forms a central pillar of our £3.6 billion Towns Fund Programme. A competitive round of the High Streets Fund is underway currently. The parameters of this competition have been agreed and set out in the published Future High Streets Fund Prospectus, and subsequent local authority guidance. A further competitive round of funding for towns and high streets is planned to follow. Details of that further competition will be published in due course.
