    Footfall is a simple indicator that tells us a lot about the nature of high streets, how they are used and how they are changing. It has been a key indicator of a town centre’s vitality and viability since the publication of Planning Policy Guidance Note 6 Town Centres and Retail Development in 1993. From footfall data from Springboard, for around 180 high streets, we have been able to draw a number of conclusions about the annual performance of high streets, during the second year of Task Force operations (from July 2020 to June 2021).
