The nation’s current health crisis has magnified some of the pressures our city centres were already facing pre-pandemic. As we change our shopping, working and leisure habits, so the role of city centres in our lives is evolving rapidly. The Southern Policy Centre’s research, commissioned by Blake Morgan, has explored what is changing in city centres, what people want to see in tomorrow’s city centres and how best we can make the transition to that new future.
This launch webinar provided an opportunity for all those with an interest in the future of our city centres to discuss our findings and explore what we can and should do to maintain them as vibrant places people want to visit.
Our speaker panel will included Andrew Carter, Chief Executive of Centre for Cities.
We also heard contributions from key figures in the public and private sectors across the region including Dr Simon Eden, Director of Southern Policy Centre and Daniel Curtis, Partner, Blake Morgan.
