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 with DIY stores, retail parks and online shopping proving to be massively popular.
Join this webinar, produced in partnership with Shoosmiths, as a panel of experts discuss how the future of town centres will change, post-pandemic, and what implications this will have on planning and development decisions.
