Since 2011, Hounslow has experienced the biggest growth in culture, media and sports jobs (37%), which could well be linked to the commitment made by Hounslow local council to increasing the retail and leisure market in each of its four town centers. In contrast, Lewisham has experienced the biggest reduction (-9%).
