Think local logo

Our market towns are full of small and medium-sized independent retailers that make our towns special. Our local businesses support local jobs, which is essential for successful towns. We can all vote with our feet to support our markets and shops.

Through our Think Local campaign, we supported the safe reopening of these businesses and a safe return to our town centres.

Our local markets and businesses make every effort to trade safely. Signs and queue markers help us all to stay safe in our high streets, being kind and patient with others.

Measures to help us enjoy our towns safely?

Together with Cambridgeshire County Council and our town councils, a number of measures have been implemented:

  • moving markets to create space in our town centres to ensure they can continue and provide plenty of safe space

  • a new parking app MiPermit or online to enable contactless parking

  • hand sanitiser within our car parks

  • signage highlighting social distancing message

  • queue and queue end markers

  • additional street cleaning

  • pavement widening where it is possible to do so
