A final blog post

Thank you for visiting our blog. 

A little over 13 years ago (17 June 2008) the first posts on this blog helped launch the Spatial Economics Research Centre (SERC). And in the 468 posts since - clocking up just under 2.4m views - we have covered spatial issues ranging from regeneration, housing supply and prices, HS2, the high street, planning reforms, superfast broadband, Brexit and the impact of Covid-19 on the housing market. 

The blog outlasted SERC - which became part of the Urban Programme at the Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) in September 2015. 

Many of us who used the blog to post about urban economic policy and our related research are still involved with the CEP's urban programme. Indeed, we've just launched another five year programme which you can read about here

But this is the final post we'll be making here. 

We've no plan to close the blog down, so you should still be able to access all the past articles (although we have turned off comments). 

Thanks to everyone who's posted over the years and to all of you who have read and commented.
