ATCM Set for Multi-Sector Gathering
on Post-Pandemic Streetscape

Cities Group Hosts The Street Fight in Manchester

When: 10am to 3.30pm, 11th October 2022
Where: Manchester City Centre, Hosted by CityCo
 
ATCM Cities Group is set for a multi-sector gathering of those involved in shaping the streetscape in a post-pandemic environment. Councils, Business Improvement Districts, businesses, delivery companies, architects and think tanks, will meet to discuss the competition for space in roads and public realm in commercial destinations.
 
The vibrant need for social distancing saw the biggest shift in the streetscape in living memory. Hospitality businesses requisitioned pavements for outdoor trading. Pedestrians claimed roads to allow them the space to socially distance from each other. And access for cars was restricted. With lockdowns over and pressure from motorists for cars to return, many towns and cities face, or have already conceded to, to reverse radical changes. But businesses and champions of active travel believe that the conditions are right for a new era for the streetscape.
 
Throw into the mix those with mobility challenges, new forms of transport such as e-scooters, delivery firms and net zero obligations. The Street Fight is not a new battle. But the pandemic has intensified the conflict.
 
ATCM is delighted to bring together key voices from a range of sectors for an honest, fascinating discussion on the streetscape.
 
Final call for bookings. Book your seat now.
