Professor Wrigley invited at Cardiff University event to present findings from ESRC-funded research – 14 October 2014

The lecture titled 'Adaptively Resilient High Streets: What We Learnt from the Economic Crisis' discussed the effect of the global financial crisis on Britain's high streets
and challenged a number of popularly accepted myths surrounding their decimation, by concluding that high streets are showing a capacity for reinvention and a surprising degree of resilience.

At his presentation, Professor Wrigley summarised findings from the Future High Streets Evidence Review, a work funded by the ESRC and co-commissioned by the Future High Streets Forum and the ESRC. A brief guide to the reviewed evidence on UK High Streets, titled 'High Street Performance and Evolution: a brief Guide to the Evidence', (co-authored by Professor Neil Wrigley and Dr Dionysia Lambiri) can be found HERE.

The lecture was one of a series of events hosted by the Innovation and Engagement Unit and the Spatial Planning and City Environments Research Group at the Cardiff School of Planning and Geography.
