Cornerstone Barristers is delighted to welcome Peter Rees, Professor of Places and City Planning at UCL and former City Planning Officer for the City of London, who will discuss some of the challenges of urban regeneration.
He will draw on his 5 decades of professional experience in the field to illustrate how places are more likely to be revitalised through individual initiative than from politically-driven planning strategies.
His stories of directing the regeneration of the City of London as a global business hub, following the deregulation of financial services in 1986, will lead into thoughts on lessons learnt and hopes for our post-Pandemia neighbourhood, the future of High Streets, retail malls and major infrastructure projects.
The webinar will provide insights for authorities and others keen to support and revitalise our town centres.
Professor Rees will be joined by Michael Bedford QC, a leading planning barrister and chair of the Cornerstone Planning Team, and Philip Kolvin QC, a leading licensing barrister and former Chair of London's Night Time Commission, also from Cornerstone Barristers.
