The Budget had some really good news for our high streets – 90% of our retailers will benefit from a cut in business rates of 1/3. When I spent the afternoon shopping in Harpenden last week, I spoke to many of our retailers who said that this will really help.

The Budget also offered more – a large £675m “Future High Streets” fund, which will enable small towns (like both Hitchin and Harpenden) to access government funds to reshape themselves for a digital age. I am working closely with small retailers in both towns to see how this can help us make our high streets even better places to live work and shop.
