This dataset contains an extract from the Centre for Cities High Street Recovery Tracker for the cities of Exeter, Bristol, Plymouth and the national average.

Exeter is recovering faster than the national average, with a city recovery index of 91 (this index looks at everyone who was in the city centre at any time of the day, compared to a pre-lockdown baseline of 100). The national average is 65.


It is not all good news however, Exeter narrowly missed out on the bottom ten cities for overall spend index of 72 (The spend index looks at relevant offline sales made in the city centre at any time of the day, compared to a pre-lockdown baseline of 100). The national average is 67.


It should be noted national averages include London, which has seen much higher levels of COVID-19 than the rest of the country, so may be lower than a "fair" comparison for Exeter. For this reason the below report includes the nearby cities of Plymouth and Bristol, to give some local context for the data.
