“We are really only at the beginning of this transformation”

At the launch, Lord David Puttnam – Board Member of Ludgate Operations, said: “The world of retail, like every part of the economy and of society, is being fundamentally transformed by the changes in consumer behaviour driven by digital technology.

“We are really only at the beginning of this transformation as the advent of 5G mobile connections will unquestionably accelerate change on every front.

“The Ludgate Hub is ideally positioned to help the community it serves reinvent itself for the digital age, by opening up world markets to our local businesses and providing fresh opportunities for jobs and investment. The eStreet project is an essential component of this ambitious wider initiative.”
