Our town centres and high streets are undergoing unprecedented change due to the rise of online shopping and the shock of the Covid-19 Pandemic. There is a need to reimagine the role of our centres for the 21st Century.

This Kent Design online Masterclass will explore the following topics:

  • Creating a vision and strategy for town centres
  • Getting buy in from stakeholders and working across disciplines
  • Quick wins and practical first steps
  • The future of high streets
  • Tactics for generating activity and interest with meanwhile uses
  • Case study: Chatham’s regeneration

We will be joined by experts working in practice, who will share their experience. Full programme coming soon!

NEW FORMAT! We understand it is difficult to find time for longer events so we have compressed this Masterclass to 2 hours so you can learn efficiently.

The Learning event will include:

  • live speaker presentations and Q&A
  • a members only resource library of presentations, key takeaways and further reading

Cany Ash, Founder / Partner, Ash Sakula Architects
