Wolverhampton bids to become "Portas Pilot" city
Wolverhampton is bidding to become a "Portas Pilot". Towns and cities across England are being handed the chance to breathe new life into their ailing high streets through a competition launched by retail guru Mary Portas and Local Government Minister Grant Shapps.
The 12 winners will become Portas Pilots and receive funding worth up to £100,000 along with expert advice from Mary Portas herself. As part of the bid, applicants were asked to put together a short film explaining why they wanted to become a Portas Pilot - and this is Wolverhampton's submission.
