The ‘Suburban Taskforce’ was established in 2020 to help us understand what ‘suburban’ really means in modern Britain. It is formed by a cross-party group of politicians who have come together with experts from a range of backgrounds to shine a light on the suburbs to identify and secure the clear, long-term and properly resourced policies needed to support thriving, sustainable and inclusive suburban areas.
The Taskforce is pleased to present a report that reviews the current estate of the English suburbs and includes recommendations which focus on the ways our suburbs are understood and to ensure that the change within them is meaningful. How should we understand and manage change within the suburbs? How can we increase public engagement in the planning process of suburban areas?
In this APPG meeting we will hear from the team behind the Suburban Taskforce on their findings and recommendations.

An Inquiry into the Future of the Suburbs
The Suburban Taskforce exists to understand what “suburban” really means in modern Britain and how we can ensure that the aspirations which we once held for our suburbs can be secured today.
It is formed from a cross-party group of politicians, from different backgrounds who have come together to shine a light on the suburbs in order to identify and secure the clear, long-term and properly resourced policies needed to support thriving, sustainable and inclusive suburban areas.
