Can you help your High Street?
Tue 18 October 2016, 09:30 – 11:30 BST
What’s happened to your local High Street? Is it a thriving community hub or has it seen better days? Come along to this session with your ideas for High Street improvements and see how you can get involved, and make a difference to your town!
During the session you’ll meet staff from the Business and Local Government Data Research Centre, based at the University of Essex. The Centre has produced a simulation model showing the High Street in action. The model focusses on the dynamics of the inflows of people on the Colchester High Street and the parameters that may affect this.
As the team develops this model further they’d like to show you how it works and to hear your suggestions for other factors which may impact on the success of the High Street. Enter your ideas into our competition and we could include them in our research, improving your High Street for the future.
Come along anytime, take a look at the model and have a play with it
