The collated evidence in this report provides a basis for understanding the spatial implications of homeworking and the potential for local coworking (working in shared workspaces) and the promotion of community working hubs. Findings are drawn from a number of rapidly available data sources in January 2021. These suggest that Wales will be well-placed to respond to an increase in homeworking through the promotion of local coworking as a means to provide alternative flexible working spaces for workers who partly or mainly work from home if the pre-COVID-19 coworking infrastructure can be maintained in the current economic situation and further adapted for the use of employees (i.e. those who are not entrepreneurs and/or mobile professional workers who were previously targeted by coworking spaces).
