The conversation will focus on the future of the High Street and how to listen to stakeholders, and work with partners and collaborators: the premise for this is that lots of city councils etc put the focus on this and have good intentions, but may not know how to do it in practice or know what best practice is.
This event will once again be hosted by IPM's Dr Steve Millington and newly appointed Senior Fellow Dr Cara Courage. The event will draw upon themes and authors from the Routledge Handbook of Placemaking.
