Getting our High Streets back on their feet
Re-opening our High Streets and kickstarting the local economy is at the top of everyone’s To Do list.
Temporary measures to protect public health and support physical distancing will soon become evident across the district, geared towards the gradual return to shopping and next month, socialising, as cafes, bars and pubs begin trading again.
The support of members is crucial to understanding issues as they arise around social distancing, parking, the new traffic measures and everything that is geared to getting Epping Forest District back to business.
We’ve set up a community engagement platform called Commonplace to help us do this and we need as many people as possible to engage through Commonplace. https://efdcsaferspacescovid19.commonplace.is/
It’s a map-based system where people can pick a spot on a map and leave a comment. It will pinpoint areas of concern and we will be able to deal with specific issues as they arise.
Shopping and socialising safely at a distance is crucial to getting our businesses back on track so please help us to do this by sharing Commonplace details with friends, neighbours and colleagues and together we can kickstart our local economy, limiting the spread of Coronavirus and ensuring Epping Forest is fit for the future.
