The Future of our Town Centres

Although COVID-19 has been a definite destructor of the UK high street, town centres were already facing decline due to a number of factors, including the rise in online shopping.

While retail sales are now recovering and believed to be higher than pre-pandemic levels, town centres are still suffering.

What does this mean for developers, local authorities and similar sectors when considering the options for property advancement and ever-evolving consumers' interests?

In this webinar, we explore:

  • How demand for town centre property is changing post pandemic
  • How the planning environment for town centres has changed
  • How developers are responding to changes in market demand and planning
  • Proactive options for local authorities wanting to reinforce and adapt their town centres

  • Speakers:
    Martyn Evans, Creative Director - U+I (U and I Group PLC)
    Michael Kiely, Chairman - Planning Officers Society
    Jennet Siebrits, Head of Research - CBRE UK
