                                            This edition of Reimagine Sessions focuses on the centre of towns, areas that currently face major challenges as we undergo a shift in how we shop, work, travel and live. How can we reimagine a future for our town cores in the face of online retail and dereliction? Could remote working allow us to turn away from long commutes, and refocus our attention on our towns as places for social interaction and connection? What needs to happen for more people to return to Main Street living?
