Looking after our town centres

This short guide provides step-by step guidance on developing and managing a town-centre partnership. By capturing the learning outcomes from 21 town-centre projects, it shows how local partners and town-centre managers can identify, engage and manage the different stakeholders involved in a project.

It emphasises that those involved in town-centre development - planners, service managers, businesses, local groups and communities - should develop clear visions and take advantage of the new opportunities when the economy recovers.
