Lewisham Council has received Government funding through the Welcome Back Fund to support town centres and high streets to be vibrant and thriving by:

  • Driving footfall
  • Ensuring that they are welcoming to local residents and visitors
  • Supporting local businesses
  • Promoting the local offer
  • Ensuring that they are welcoming places that people want to visit and enjoy. 

Through this fund we are planning to: 

  • Deliver a communications campaign to promote local high streets, spotlight local businesses and attract visitors

  • Work with local organisations to deliver events and activities that will welcome people back to the high streets and town centres, boost footfall and support local businesses

  • Explore the use of data relating to town centres and high streets to support their recovery and help to build resilience

  • Develop Evening and Night Time Economy (ENTE) action plans.
