Beauty stores post corona / with social distancing will be an interesting concept.

Friend working on strategy for a well known brand has been tasked with coming for a strategy for this exact problem. Opening up new stores surprisingly isn't part of the strategy.

Yep.

That’s what I wrote.

The final paragraph was just my speculation, as it might not be economic for Next to have 2 large premises so close in the long run. So combine the two at the largest one.

Erm. I think there could be some disruption here. Having said that it’s badly needed.

I do hope they hang fire on this. One of the biggest knock on effects to lockdown will be more people working from home.

My fiance usually worked from home 1 day a week, and obviously now hasn't been in the office for months now. She's hoping that the long-term will be working from home either 2 or 3 days a week instead. However, yesterday she took a call and was told it was very likely that her team would be full time working from home, even when everything goes back to normal.

If say that is the case for 25% of office commuters, then surely less trains are needed for rush hour?

Curtains for the Porter & Sorter, if that goes ahead; Gloucester Road becomes a dead-end.

And imagine all the eyesores of all those flyovers and dive-unders - the graffiti.

Something definitely needs to be done with EC, NJ and the bottleneck, but I don't have any faith in architects not to create more problems with the built environment.

My colleagues in France and Italy have mainly been desperate to get back into the office. My colleagues Germany and the U.K. are mainly cool to work from home on an ongoing basis.

What does she do? And does she want to WFH full time? (I certainly wouldn't.)

Currently rush hour trains are bursting at the seams. If you removed 25% of passengers at a stroke, some trains would still be standing room-only by the time they got to East Croydon in the morning!

And unless Covid turns into a real nasty bastard, the population is only going to grow. Infrastructure projects like this have to think in terms of decades - what we build today will have to cater for the next 50 years or more. And it's reasonable to assume, absent of the invention some kind of sci-fi technology we can't conceive today, that the demand in, say, 30 years' time will be much more than today.

She deals with local council complaints. She doesn't want to work from home full time.

I know it can work for some people, but I think it really shows what matters to companies at the end of the day - £££. WFH full time just cannot be good for your mental or physical health, but it means the chance to downsize office space and that saves money. All that guff about them caring for your mental health is a load of bollocks.

She had a 10 minute walk to the train station, then a 10 minute walk to work at the other end, and on lunch she went to the gym. I think out of everything, the gym is what she is missing the most.

My old workplace have really used this situation as a way to strip away perks. When I was there, the holiday allowance was insane - I had 36 12 hour shifts off a year, working 4on 4off. For those who are still there, this will be reduced to 23 days.

This pandemic has shown up a few companies. A broker mate of mine works for a firm where they've kept the office in the City open throughout and are putting increasing pressure on all staff to come in, even though it's technically possible (IT) to WFH, and absolutely every other firm in the industry has closed their doors and got everyone WFH. The only possible explanation is that the owner/CEO is a psychopath.

Anyway, that's off-topic.

Hearing a few stories via my friends and kids that they are meeting friends/old friends who have been moved out by Croydon Council and housed in Kent - particularly Maidstone it seems. Is this a Croydon Council policy? If so we could get quite an increase in Palace fans although we have a fair few already.
