The council is celebrating the news that Maidenhead is to receive top-level business support to help create new jobs, increase footfall and reduce empty property units.

Following a successful bid by Maidenhead Town Partnership (MTP), the town is in the first cohort of 29 towns countrywide, out of an eventual 100, to be accepted on to Business in the Community (BITC)’s Healthy High Streets initiative.

Working with MTP, the Co-operative Group will be Maidenhead’s personal high street champion providing support and advice to achieve the aims.

Cllr MJ Saunders, cabinet member for planning and property, corporate transformation and Maidenhead, said: “Following hot on the heels of the Thames Valley Town of the Year award, this excellent news is further evidence that Maidenhead’s potential is being recognised.

“But what’s more, and what is so critically important, is that being involved in the Healthy High Streets initiative means the town centre will benefit from top-level support and guidance.”

Jane Wright, chair of MTP, said: “We are delighted that MTP’s bid was successful and look forward to working with the Co-operative Group and seeing this collaboration bear fruit.”

Healthy High Streets is focused on towns that demonstrate a need for the support, have the potential for growth, have an established or emerging partnership to improve the town and are served by the businesses involved in the campaign – Boots UK, the Co-operative Group, Marks & Spencer and Santander.

BITC’s aim is to create 3,000 jobs, increase footfall by 10% and reduce empty property units by 20% over a three-year period in the 100 selected towns.
