#Crawley on the Centre for Cities Podcast

Since their formation, the Centre for Cities has provided an invaluable stream of research and thinking on the economic and social issues facing the UK’s leading urban areas, one I have made extensive use of in considering how to address various opportunities challenges facing Crawley.

While we knew from the start that Crawley’s economy would be highly vulnerable to the lockdown, it was research from the Centre for Cities which first revealed the scale: that Crawley would be one of the hardest hit economies in the country.

This week, the Centre for Cities podcast is focused on the economic consequences of COVID-19 and I was invited to appear the podcast to discuss how the virus has impacted Crawley and what it means for the town’s future. You can access the podcast using the link below.
