The high streets of Hampstead

Flask Walk, Hampstead

The Hampstead & Highgate Express relaunches today, with digital subscriptions – support our local newspaper! – and a major feature on the future of Hampstead’s high streets.

High streets everywhere were already changing before the pandemic. Hampstead is lovely, but no exception. The pandemic has pressed the accelerator. What will we want from our high streets in a future with so many more of us working from home?

The Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum invites you to explain how your needs are changing. Survey open until 29 April.
