Taking part: shaping London’s town centres

This event, hosted by UK think tank Centre for London will discuss shaping London’s town centres.

The coronavirus pandemic has changed our relationships with our local high streets, perhaps forever. Lockdown has accelerated the growth of online shopping and the closure of major retailers, while ‘stay local’ restrictions and the growth of local support groups mean many Londoners feel more connected to their neighbourhood than ever before.

There has never been a more important time to think about how local residents are involved in shaping their high streets and town centres. Centre for London’s new report explores how we can make this work in practice in London and beyond.

Join the Centre for London team and experts from local government and communities to discuss:

What would our town centres and high streets look like with more inclusive community involvement? How would this benefit businesses and those working in them?

How can central and local government best support communities to get involved in their local areas?

As we emerge from the pandemic, what will be the role of high streets and town centres in our daily life?


Speakers to be announced.
