By | Uncategorised | No Comments

I’m delighted to have been appointed as a High Streets Task Force Expert and being part of this national effort and supporting local authorities and communities to transform their high streets. 

The High Streets Task Force announces today their appointment of recognised experts to support local authorities, helping to solve complex, interdisciplinary issues, and bringing expertise to entrenched problems and new challenges.

High Streets Task Force Experts advise on a range of issues, including planning, urban design, placemaking, landscape architecture, resilience, transport, valuation, asset management, investment, governance, data and analytics, place management and leadership. Once assigned, Experts also to help to prescribe Task Force support that best meets the needs of the places that they visit and advise, helping to tackle a range of issues that could be blocking the potential of the local high streets.

The High Streets Task Force has recruited to the Experts register through four professional bodies, including the Royal Town Planning Institute, which represent specialist expertise and knowledge, working for and alongside those that manage high streets.

Experts are experienced and respected professionals, at Member or Fellow level of their respective professional body. We will: 

  • Visit specific high streets and town centres to work with place leaders and the community to identify the important key issue(s) that are hampering successful transformation, and how to address these.
  • Consult with local authorities and place stakeholders to help solve complex challenges, which may also include running vision workshops and brokering relationships within the local community.
