Mark Robinson, High Streets Task Force Chair comments: I’m delighted to welcome Ibrahim to the High Streets Task Force as I know he is dedicated to sustainable, inclusive and successful town centres. At Portland, he has led inspirational change and is at the vanguard of a progressive vision for high streets; one that is representative of local communities and ready to adapt to emerging ways of living.
COVID-19 has presented major challenges to the future of high streets, but it is also a chance to reimagine them. Ibrahim will be part of that work on the Task Force Board.
Ibrahim Ibrahim, said: “I am delighted and privileged to be joining the High Streets Task Force Board, which is an important body to drive new ideas in re-thinking and re-purposing our high streets and urban centres as a response to the rapidly changing retail landscape. Creating smart, connected places with built-in flexibility to respond to changing expectations of our communities will ensure ‘Future Readiness’ and an authentic spirit of place. I am looking forward to the opportunity of working closely with the Task Force board on this exciting challenge”.
