Cities Outlook and its associated research has examined the ongoing impact of Covid-19 on high streets and town centres and what this means for places as they recover and grow from the pandemic.

Covid-19 has had a huge effect on all of our high streets, but some cities and towns are better positioned than others to quickly recover. Cities Outlook 2022 explored where has been hardest hit, why and what this means for places, and for the Government’s levelling up agenda.

It provided policy makers with an insight into the impact of the pandemic on high streets across the UK and offered recommendations on what needs to be done to support their recoveries.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Abi Brown, Leader of Stoke-on-Trent City Council
  • Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester
  • Caroline Green, CEO of Oxford City Council
  • Sebastian Payne, Whitehall Editor at the Financial Times and author of Broken Heartlands: A Journey Through Labour’s Lost England
  • Jules Pipe, Deputy Mayor of London for Planning, Regeneration and Skills
  • Tom Riordan, CEO of Leeds City Council
  • Tony Reeves, CEO of Liverpool City Council

The event was chaired by Andrew Carter, Chief Executive of Centre for Cities.
