Retail Diversity – the Moral MazeSeptember 8, 2009
A London First seminar on Monday evening (14 September 2009), hosted by CB Richard Ellis, will examine ways to improve the diversity of retail in London, a key Mayoral objective to be addressed in the London Plan Review.
This follows the establishment earlier in the year, by business group London First of a Retail Commission, chaired by Grosvenor’s Jeremy Newsum, to produce recommendations on how a diverse retail sector can be encouraged and sustained in London.
In the style of BBC’S Moral Maze, participants will be able to make two-minute pitch for their preferred measures that Government, the Mayor, boroughs and business should adopt to best serve this objective.
Speakers include Stuart Robinson of CB Richard Ellis, Jeremy Newsum of Grosvenor, Chris Taylor of QIC, George Nicholson of National Retail Planning Forum and Jeremy Collins of John Lewis.
Media may attend by prior arrangement.
