MARK ROBINSON SPEAKS AT PLACE NORTH WESTS' FUTURE OF RETAIL + LEISURE CONFERENCE
23rd Sep 2020
Ellandi Co-Founder Mark Robinson spoke as a guest on North West's Panel discussing the future of town centres. The Panel discussed the need to accelerate the current trend towards repurposing defunct retail space, as well as the emerging difference between the recovery of local town centres and big cities.
Presenting on the Government’s High Streets Task Force, Mark Robinson said: “The task force is a child of the Timpson Review and the £750m Future High Streets Fund announced in August 2019. The aim is to corral the efforts of talented people with a stake in placemaking. From Ellandi’s work in Ashton-under-Lyne, Bootle, Chester and Middleton, we’ve seen the need for proactive local authorities, [repurposing] retail space, community use and adoption of Big Data.”
