Minister for Local Growth supports Andrea's Towns of the Future campaign

As an ex-retailer with 18 years experience in retail management, Andrea cares deeply about the future of our local high streets.

During questions to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, Andrea launched her “Towns of the future” campaign, to revive high streets, help local businesses and future-proof towns.

During a question to the Minister for Local Growth, Jake Berry MP, Andrea asked what steps his Department is taking to minimize the number of empty properties on our high streets and to persuade landlords to find new tenants.

Andrea has promoted a petition to lower business rates to alleviate the pressures faced by businesses on the high street.
