This event, hosted by UK think tank Centre for Cities will examine the impact of Covid-19 on high streets and town centres and what this means for these places.
Join us for the launch of Cities Outlook 2022, our flagship annual review of the state of urban Britain.
This year, Cities Outlook and its associated research will examine the impact of Covid-19 on high streets and town centres and what this means for places as they recover and grow from the pandemic.
Covid-19 has had a huge effect on all of our high streets, but some cities and towns are better positioned than others to quickly recover. Cities Outlook 2022 will explore where has been hardest hit, why and what this means for places, and for the Government’s levelling up agenda.
It will provide policy makers with an insight into the impact of the pandemic on high streets across the UK and offer recommendations on what needs to be done to support their recoveries.
