At the People & Places Partnership we are proud to have prepared new resources for the Local Government Association on revitalising town centres.
This new handbook and the accompanying online toolkit offer guidance to council leaders on how to approach the revitalisation of town and city centres. The guidance places an emphasis on delivering long-term impacts and using broad principles that can be tailored to meet local needs.
The handbook was informed by a LGA-led seminar of senior practitioners in November 2017 and it has been compiled jointly with the People & Places Partnership. It is intended to provide a high-level overview to guide councils in taking a strategic and evidence-based approach. The handbook contains suggestions of further reading, helpful resources and examples of good practice that can be accessed through a more extensive and detailed online toolkit.
