A number of pop-up shops are to be built in the old town area of Leicester as part of a £1 million scheme to encourage business.
Leicester City Council will use the money, which has been awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, to create temporary shops in disused buildings.
The city council will be working with De Montfort University, The University of Leicester, Leicester Civic Society and Leicester Cathedral.
Work is due to start in June next year and will run until 2018.
