Britain’s high streets faced considerable additional challenges to their success during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in relation to the government enforced restrictions between March 2020 and August 2021. This typology of resilience can provide important information on the characteristics of Britain’s high streets and the impact of the lockdown restrictions.
This data profile describes a dataset held by the Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC), which has been generated through original CDRC research, based on data provided by the Local Data Company (LDC). The dataset contains aggregated indicators at the British high street level.
The British high street boundaries have been defined as those CDRC retail centre boundaries that contain 15 or more retail locations as determined by the data provided by the LDC. The boundary definition is based on the Ordnance Survey’s (2019) definition of a high street. CDRC retail centre boundaries were taken from the seven selected classifications (district centre, small local centre, local centre, major town centre, regional centre, market town, town centre), retail parks and out-of-town shopping centres have been excluded.
