Join Professor Chan Heng Chee, Chair of Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities online this evening as she provides expert testimony on ‘Supporting our High Streets Post Covid’ before the UK House of Commons Select Committee on Housing, Communities and Local Government. The inquiry will examine the long-term consequences of the Covid-19 outbreak on the future of the high street. It is interested in how government, at all levels, can mitigate the economic and social impact and develop policies to ensure high streets remain the centre of local communities. The Committee will look at the impact of existing measures to support the high street, including the business rate holiday, as well as the broader role of taxation in enabling high street businesses to remain viable. Professor Carlos Moreno, Scientific Director, Panthenon Sorbonne University, IAE Paris as well as Professor Ricky Burdett, Director of LSE Cities and Urban Age, London School of Economics will also be joining Prof Chan in this session.
