High Street

Drive for net zero could harm high street accessibility, says Bira

Measures such as high street pedestrianisation and a reduction of car park spaces have been highlighted by the organisation as potential issues for indie shopkeepers

The British Independent Retailers Association (Bira) has raised concerns over the impacts that local councils’ drive to achieve net zero could have on independent retailers.

The industry body claimed that despite being “committed” to supporting its members in acting sustainable, it is “concerned” that schemes introduced by local authorities could reduce the accessibility of the high street.
