The Great British High Street Awards

The Great British High Street Awards are back and this time we’d like to see West Sussex go one better. Last year Bognor Regis was named as runner-up in Britain’s best coastal high street category – now it’s your turn to nominate yours!


Run by the DCLG, winning high streets could receive a welcome cheque for £10,000, helping them to fund necessary improvements or go towards upcoming project works.


This year you have the opportunity to nominate a worthy West Sussex village, town or city across 14 different categories, including five new awards recognising regeneration and our own ‘High Street Heroes’.


Whether you’re fond of your village’s network of friendly small business owners, or you love the hustle and bustle of a nearby market town – we encourage you to nominate your favourite and help put West Sussex on the map.


There’s still time to take part – nominations are open to everyone and run until Friday 9th September before voting begins.


Shout about your town or village pride and nominate them online at


With kind regards



Louise Goldsmith

Leader, West Sussex County Council
