FSB wants businesses to have their say on what the future holds

The Federation of Small Businesses is launching a massive poll of high street firms across the UK to help plan a ‘new golden age of the high street’.

The FSB will launch its The Future of the High Street survey on July 13 to find out how high streets are changing – and to work out what support businesses need from government.

The group wants as many businesses as possible to share their thoughts so the FSB can lobby ministers and political parties ahead of the next general election.

The FSB says the UK’s high streets, which first became a central place of commerce, trade and community during the industrial revolution, are now on the cusp of transformation.
