||<p>At Budget 2018, the Government set out Our Plan for the High Street to help local
high streets to evolve and adapt to changing consumer demands. This included a cut
for smaller retailers to business rates by a third for two years from 1 April 2019.
The Government also announced a new £675m Future High Streets Fund to support local
areas to make high streets fit for the future. £55 million of the Fund has also been
allocated to support the regeneration of historic high streets and town centres.</p>
