Temporary measures to protect businesses and high street users

As town centres reopened in the summer of 2020, followingEN development fund
government guidance, we introduced a range of measures to facilitate social distancing and help people stay safe when visiting their local High Street. Over the past few months, as people have become used to social distancing we have been able to remove some of those initial measures, but a few still remain where social distancing would be genuinely difficult to achieve without those measures in place.

We do appreciate that these measures may cause inconvenience to some, but our priority is to protect people’s health and support people to be able to use their town centres safely.  We anticipate that if social distancing requirements are lifted at Step 4 of the Government’s ‘Roadmap to Recovery’, the remaining measures will be removed.
