Councils across England are to share £50m of additional ERDF funding to support the safe reopening of high streets and other commercial areas. The money will allow local authorities 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. This funding is additional to the Government’s comprehensive package of support for business and workers during the economic emergency.
All non-essential retailers will be able to reopen in England from 15 June and across D2N2 local councils have been allocated a total of £1,867,945 to support their business communities with measures that enable safe trading in public places. Local councils in the D2N2 area have been awarded the following amounts of ERDF to focus on high streets, as well as other public places that are at the heart of towns and cities to reopen as safe, welcoming spaces.
