Local authority footfall

Touched on footfall in a number of threads.

Keeps popping up.

Worthy of it's own thread, like LA property investments.

After an initial drop in the number of people visiting Scarborough town centre during lockdown, the figures have begun to slowly creep back up over the last month.

NONE. OF. THE. FUCKING. SHOPS. ARE. FUCKING. OPEN.

If you wanted proof of how pointless footfall us then this is it.

If an LA wants yo know how well its local area us doing then it needs to track how much empty commercial estate it has, and how long it's been empty.

Getting the price paid for commercial rent paid sq feet would be good.

A quick Google shows all councils are doing footfall.

Non have questioned if it's a good metric. It isn't.

Has same stink as BIDs where councils have let a small number of scummy consultancies roll out BIDs and bill millions for consultancy.

Coronavirus: High Streets see 'fastest ever' footfall drop

The number of shoppers visiting UK High Streets, retail parks and shopping centres fell at its fastest rate ever in April as the lockdown forced people to stay indoors, industry figures show.

Footfall fell by more than 80% after all but essential shops closed their doors, according to Springboard.

That was almost double the level of March's downturn when there was a 41.3% drop in visits to shopping locations.

Springboard said the April slump was a "decline of unprecedented magnitude".

UK 'set for deepest downturn in living memory'

Shoppers swap clothes for drink as retail sales sink

Shopping centres were the worst hit by the drop in footfall, as visits fell by 84.8%.

Meanwhile, the number of visits to High Streets around the country fell by 83.3% and footfall at retail parks was 68.1% lower.
