Description

Technology is evolving at an increasing rate - but is the high street developing with it? Simon Pitkeathley discusses the necessity for high street amenities such as markets to keep up with the changing technological world. The high street is no longer a place people need to visit to buy their groceries, as this can be done online now. Instead, we must explore ideas of how else we can revive the high street and reignite the community spirit it has enjoyed for so long. For this to happen, Simon argues, we must look to new innovative ways to use space. Fill empty shops with work space for young people, build affordable homes, and allow London to continue to evolve!
