High Streets and Town Centres Development Conference; In association with Lambert Smith Hampton

Wednesday, 22nd September 2021 0800hrs – 1600hrs

Kensington Town Hall, London, Hornton Street, W8 7NX

The UK’s high streets and town centres are under immense pressure; changing shopping habits, the advent of online and the trend of hyperlocal mean local authorities are facing increasing challenges to maintain their position as the epicentre of economic activity.

The Covid-19 crisis has laid bare the problems facing an ever evolving retail sector and the population’s social habits which means stakeholders are having to adapt their places to meet the demands of local people, businesses and visitors. This high level event brings together councils, developers, major investors and built environment experts to share insights and market intelligence about projects that spin out of the £830m Future High Streets Fund and the £3.6bn Towns Fund.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Hilton Hotel’s development plans
  • £1bn transformation of Dudley
  • North East Lincolnshire Council’s £50m fund
  • And much more…
