Vacant retail units

Recent government announcements have caused a stir amongst the retail industry, as plans have been discussed to convert empty shops across the UK into cultural havens for community use.

So, are such schemes the right move for a struggling industry in the economic downturn, or should the government have concentrated on helping retailers stay in business in the first place?
