It is no secret that the high street is suffering from the impacts of online retail. Not only this, but retailers also taking a hit from the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, and the on-going effects of COVID-19.

Our expert speakers will include Keith Fenwick, Senior Director, and Sarah Butterfield, Director, from our Birmingham office. They will be joining together with Irwin Mitchell to deliver a webinar that will discuss the following:

  • The £830m town centre funding package announced on Boxing Day, a good proportion of which is targeted at Midlands market towns
  • Recent significant changes to the Use Classes Order
  • Consultations around the relaxation and flexibility of permitted development rights
  • Market view – “hardening of landlords attitudes & tenant insolvencies”

Further topics to be covered include what the Government is doing to tackle the challenges faced by the high street, and what investment and planning opportunities may arise as a result.

The webinar will be taking place on Wednesday 17th February 2021 at 8:45am – 10:00am.
