Cities Outlook 2022 Launch

Join us for the launch of our annual health-check of UK cities

Event starts at 12.00- 13.30 on 24 January 2022 at Online

Join us for the launch of Cities Outlook 2022, our flagship annual review of the state of urban Britain.

This year, Cities Outlook and its associated research will examine 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 will explore where has been hardest hit, why and what this means for places, and for the Government’s levelling up agenda.

It will provide policy makers with an insight into the impact of the pandemic on high streets across the UK and offer 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
  • Kate Josephs, CEO of Sheffield 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
  • Tony Reeves, CEO of Liverpool City Council

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