Mayor of London funding for high streets this autumn

Future Cities Forum will be turning its attention to the plight of the UK high street in our discussions this autumn. Whether it is proper city planning or additional cultural activities, the high street will need to evolve if it is to survive.

Our 'City districts' forum this week touched on the planning of retail around new housing districts in London and Birmingham and in Future Cities Forum's 'Cultural Cities' event in Oxford in October, Lord Mendoza of the DCMS will speak about the value of cultural assets in the high street recovery post pandemic.
