‘Non-essential’ retailers in Eastleigh town centre and in shopping hubs around the Borough have reopened their doors thanks to a range of measures designed to ensure social distancing and make shopping safer.

Eastleigh Borough Council has received over £118,000 of government funding to support the safe reopening of its ‘high streets’ and other commercial areas across the Borough following the Government’s announcement that non-essential shops can re-open from today.

The Council is now working with other local councils and business organisations including  Hampshire County Council, Eastleigh BID (Business Improvement District) and Parish/Town Councils to use the money to put in place additional measures to establish a safe trading environment for businesses and customers in high streets and other retail areas.

With more businesses reopening across the Borough, and as things start to return to a new state of normal, the Council is sharing advice for staying safe and alert when reopening businesses and going back to work.

High Street and Market Street in Eastleigh town centre are closing to vehicles to allow safer social distancing for shoppers.

It is advised to not have an unnecessary trip to Eastleigh town centre, find out which shops in Eastleigh town centre are opening and when
