The long-term impact of the pandemic on towns and cities

Inquiry

The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed our relationship with towns and cities, and the dynamic within those areas. This inquiry will look at the long-term impact of the pandemic on large towns and smaller cities, concentrating particularly on housing and green spaces, the changing nature of employment and public transport, and the resulting impact on inequality. The Committee will also explore the potential to develop and implement an innovative vision for the future of towns and cities, especially how we create more equal towns and cities.
