Have a new ‘mini mall’ type place like merry hill set just outside of the city centre. Big brand names and chains can locate here and allow small independent businesses to thrive on the high street. Lower the rent for these business on the high street and give them a chance.
More people will be attracted to the city for the big shopping experience and activities a mall has to offer and make the high street a ‘day out’ destination with independent shops, cafes and restaurants.
