Former chief of design for the London Legacy Development Corporation, Kathryn Firth, discusses Olympic Legacy and the progress of the regeneration of Stratford with Peter Murray.

The East Village in Stratford has started to feel lived in... I was happy to see that the road markings had faded, some of that perceived newness has gone. 

It [Stratford] is a good example of a post-COVID City; walkable but still well-connected. 

Kathryn moves on to discuss some post-COVID planning strategies for the Mayor of London and pinpoints key areas that need to be addressed, such as, the impacts of depopulation, supporting local, reducing business rates and how we can turn the City of London into its own village. 

They're trying to create these wonderful lifestyle environments, but living is not a part of that.
