High Streets for All

High Streets for All is a research study commissioned by the Mayor of London and authored by LSE Cities and We Made That. The study takes one of the most commonplace experiences of the city – the high street – and uses the perspective of Londoners to understand its diverse economic, social and environmental benefits, collectively known as its ‘social value’. This methodology builds on the LSE Cities’ Super-diverse Streets research project, led by Suzanne Hall, Cities Programme Director. Together with existing knowledge and new primary research, the study used this evidence to set out the strategic case for advocacy, intervention and investment in London’s high streets.
