High Streets Data Service and Partnership
The High Streets Data Service (HSDS) is a collaborative data sharing partnership between the Mayor of London, London boroughs, and Business Improvement Districts.
Borne out of the High Streets for All Mission to steward London’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, the HSDS utilises high quality, anonymised datasets from leading companies to guide policy, strategy, and investment in London’s 600+ high streets and town centres.
The High Streets Data Service enables users to explore:
- Private data purchased through the partnership, including footfall, spending, and catchments broken down by high street and time-of-day
- Public data, including Google mobility, planning boundaries, cultural infrastructure, and air quality data is open
The data enables users to:
- Explore variation of high street activity around the clock and throughout the week
- Understand untapped opportunities in high streets, such as more essential services like childcare and healthcare, extended opening hours of businesses, or a better culture and nightlife offer.
- See how local high streets fit into a bigger London picture, serving communities with a shared interest or specialising in something that attracts people from far afield.
The partnership is funded by a subscription membership of interested parties, and underwrites the collective purchase of data, quality assurance, and analysis.
Collectively purchased data is only available to members of the partnership: contact High Streets Data Service team to request access.
