Encourage click and collect zones to get the foot fall back in towns.
Encourage growth in shops where people cannot click and collect (barbers, nail bars, etc).

Encourage a family-friendly night time economy with bars and restaurants, cinemas, etc.
Thus keeping the town alive for more hours a day, rather than just 9 to 5.
Lastly, don’t let out-of-town shopping complexes offer free parking or do something about parking charges in town.
