Pandemic, People and Places: shaping our places as we learn to live and work with Coronavirus


 

 

This one off webinar event had thinkingplace Director John Till ‘in conversation’ with Martin Reeves, Chief Executive of Coventry City Council and Gold Command for Covid-19 response and recovery for the Council and West Midlands Regional Metropolitan Chiefs including Strategic Coordinating Group and sponsored Chief Executive for test, track and isolate across the Metropolitan area.

 

Martin is passionate about the role and importance of place and uniquely placed to give his perspective on the implications of Coronavirus for communities, the economy and what the future might hold for our places.

 

This no holds barred conversation considered how places have responded, the role of institutions, the Government response, how we need to better use our local assets, what living alongside the virus means, whether this means fundamental change in how our places develop and are governed and how the crisis has impacted on him professionally and personally.

 

The discussion covered these and other areas:

As places look to recover from Coronavirus many are talking about a reset what might that mean?

What are the implications for place shaping and is the role of the local authority likely to change?

In a future that will be messier, fuzzier and greyer will the collaborations created out of crisis stand the test of time?

Will more power be devolved so that places can manage their own destiny?
