Minister acts to speed up Portas Pilots high street revamp

Category : Business

Local growth minister unveils network of business leaders to advise 27 towns piloting ideas suggested by Mary Portas

The government is hoping a national network of retail and property business leaders can speed up change on Britain’s high streets.

The Future High Streets Forum will advise the 27 towns piloting ideas suggested by TV retail guru Mary Portas, in a 2011 report for the government.

It will also guide 330 town teams, which are trying to revamp high streets in the face of competition from the internet. Alex Gourlay, the chief executive of Boots, and Mark Prisk, local growth minister, will co-chair the forum, which will include representatives from John Lewis, the Association of Town & City Management and the Association of Convenience Stores.

Prisk will tell a meeting of the 27 so-called Portas Pilots in Loughborough on Thursday: “It is clear that our high streets will need to change to prosper. There is already great work being done across the country to revitalise the town centres, but it needs to spread further faster.”

The new move comes as several pilot programmes have been slow to spend their £100,000 project funds while others have been hit by disagreements.

Davos: are the captains of capitalism finally paying attention? | Observer editorial

The presence of bosses at the World Economic Forum’s side shows suggests a willingness to engage with the real world

By yesterday morning in Davos, workmen were already up ladders in the freezing mountain air, dismantling the hoardings that had transformed the resort town’s cafes into slickly branded hangouts for super-rich business leaders. By tonight, the thousands of sleek plutocrats who have thronged its streets and bars will have jetted out, turning it back into a sleepy Alpine ski town.

It’s easy to mock the World Economic Forum. After the session on global development on Thursday evening, delegates emerged from hearing about the plight of the world’s hungry to see a lavish Chinese buffet laid out just outside the conference hall. As they tucked in, a band struck up with Abba’s Money, Money, Money.

This year’s theme was “resilient dynamism”, one of those vacuous pieces of managementese that could just as easily mean oiling the wheels of the capitalist machine, as anything pertaining to the WEF’s motto of “improving the state of the world”. A lone, polite protester, quietly handing out flyers urging attendees to spare “a moment’s silence for the victims of greed”, was almost the only sign of the tumultuous world outside.

Yet even here, at the ultimate corporate schmooze-fest, there were signs of disquiet among the captains of capitalism. JP Morgan boss Jamie Dimon reacted furiously to the suggestion that global banks are too big to be safe, insisting they had been “ports in the storm”; and the prevalence of big bosses at events covering everything from tackling youth unemployment to “de-risking Africa” was a clear demonstration that they feel they have to offer the public a more compelling raison d’etre than profit maximisation alone.

In the years when the Washington consensus really was just that, the kind of deregulated capitalism that created the plutocrats of Davos was unapologetic. Its champions are quieter now. But if there is a fairer alternative out there, its proponents will need to shout a lot more loudly to get themselves heard up there in the mountains.
