  • Derby’s two Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) – Cathedral Quarter and St Peters Quarter - today welcomed news that the city centre has been chosen to be part of Business in the Community’s Healthy High Streets programme. Derby is one of 34 areas selected for the programme which is backed by some of the UK’s biggest high street brands with founding partners Boots UK, Co-operative Group, Marks & Spencer and Santander joined by EE, Exterion Media and Greggs. The Healthy High Streets programme will see Derby benefit from a bespoke package of support including access to skills and expertise from dedicated High Street champions who will work with Derby City Council, local partners and representatives from the Cathedral Quarter and St Peters Quarter BID’s. The aim is to increase footfall, reduce the number of vacant properties and stimulate the creation of new jobs. The national programme launched in June –with the total number of participating High Streets now standing at 67.  Martin Langsdale, chair of the Cathedral Quarter Board, which drives forward activities under the area’s BID status, said today: “The Healthy High Streets programme closely reflects the objectives of the Cathedral Quarter BID and will be a welcome addition to the work that is already making such a positive difference in this part of the city centre. “As the independent heart of the city centre, it will be good to have additional support from these major companies through Business in the Community to spearhead further initiatives.” Stephen Jeffery is chair of St Peters Quarter, which is the core retail area between the Cathedral Quarter and Intu Derby shopping centre. He said: “St Peters Quarter is the city centre’s traditional high street with such vibrant and busy streets as St Peter’s Street and East Street. “Having the support and buy-in from major high street businesses who evidently recognise that a vibrant high street is the life blood of every town and city in the UK is particularly pleasing.” Commenting on the programme’s expansion, Robin Foale, Managing Director of Santander Business Banking, and chair of the Healthy High Streets programme said “Congratulations to Derby on being chosen to be part of the Healthy High Streets programme. “This is a great opportunity to work with the business partners and the local High Street Champions to continue to create a thriving, vibrant centre for the local community.” Business in the Community’s Peter Donohoe said: “One of the most powerful ways for business to make an impact in communities is by creating high streets that are vibrant places to live, work and do business. “It has been heartening to see first-hand the practical difference that collaborative, business-led action can make on UK high streets in just one year. While there is much to be proud of about our High Streets Programme we also know that there is more work to be done. We warmly welcome Greggs, EE and Exterion Media as programme partners and look forward to working with Derby to create lasting change.” To find out more about Business in the Community’s high streets work visit www.bitc.org.uk/healthyhighstreets
