Revival: as London comes back to life… what’s the plan?

Revival: as London comes back to life… what’s the plan?

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

As with all cities during the height of the pandemic, it delivered a blow to London’s culture, nightlife and hospitality sectors. The point of paying London’s high living costs was to stay close to the action but when that action suddenly stopped, this became an uneven deal. Enabled by the rise of homeworking, it’s estimated that 90,000 Londoners left the capital during the pandemic, buying homes elsewhere in the UK. Post-pandemic, behaviours have changed with the re-balancing between online and in-person activity, but there’s no denying London is getting its buzz back.

As we return to a world of after work socialising, good quality coffee and a rich cultural calendar, are the 90,000 wondering if they jumped the gun? What sort of future does London have, and what should the current Mayor, the Government, private businesses and most importantly, 9 million Londoners focus on to safeguard the capital’s status as one of the best cities in the world?
