Ahead of a roundtable on sustainable cities and communities, Chambers Ireland today (20 May 2021) calls for an ambitious strategy and collaborative approach to ensure towns and cities are supported in the recovery.
Speaking today, Chambers Ireland Chief Executive Ian Talbot said,
“The pandemic has forced us to think differently about how we use space and how we spend our time. This has presented significant challenges for our urban centres which have suffered enormously from the cycles of lockdowns and closures. With outdoor dining on the horizon, and our cities and towns beginning to fill with life again, our members are eager to make the most of what will largely be an outdoor summer.
To do this successfully, we need to adapt our streets and public realm to create more space not just for businesses, but for people of all ages.”
