Shaping Reading’s Future
A Place for Work, Life and Play
In a matter of weeks in 2020, the lives of so many were changed in ways they had never imagined. The working world moved rapidly from "business as usual" to cautious travel, office closures, and work-from-home mandates.
COVID-19 will have lasting effects on how people live, work, and play. By acting today, anyone involved in property and location can best serve end users and ensure their own viability. The property & location section of this toolkit is designed to help businesses make smart decisions regarding their premises, location and return to work.
Reading plays host to both town centre and out of town developments that are easy to access and COVID-19 secure, and is already home to many global businesses as well as acting as a magnet for early stage businesses and entrepreneurs.
