Periscope on BBC Panorama

Periscope was featured on the BBC’s Panorama program last night. We were talking about the practice's work on the future of the High Street. The program (How to Save the High Street) proposed solutions to many of the issues surrounding the declining performance of the UK’s High Streets. It takes a look at some great examples of how to move from a retail focused High Street toward more social and community based activities, from Stockton to Southend-on-Sea. We talk about our key themes for the development of sustainable High Streets and propose a model for how we might create the ideal High Street of the future. Take a look at our Dover Midtown Masterplan for how we have applied our ideas to the High Street there.

The program is available on BBC iplayer in the UK here.
