When we published our Planning Manifesto for High Streets and Town Centres in January 2020, little did we know what was around the corner. The pandemic has accelerated many of the trends we highlighted in the manifesto and high streets and town centres are undergoing fundamental transformation. Whilst we have seen some progress, particularly around planning flexibility and the creation of Class E, what more can planning and licencing do to facilitate positive change?

We are delighted to be partnering with both London Councils and the Planning Officers Society London to facilitate this cross-sector follow up discussion. This virtual roundtable will bring together our members and representatives from the Boroughs to share experience and intelligence on what is happening in the market and how planning and licensing can be more supportive of trends such as experience-led retail, new leisure uses and growing demand for click and collect.
