We are pleased to announce that five of our urban planning consultants have been appointed by the High Streets Task Force register of Experts. Over the coming months, the senior members from our London and Manchester offices will be helping communities and local government transform their high streets – by 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 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.
