Our Town Centres are in trouble: town planners, developers and councils need to think creatively to make sure they don’t become extinct.
There is hope.
Town centres need to be viewed as a whole, fed by mixed uses which work to complement each other, not a series of individually owned elements operating in isolation. I’m working across the country with clients to make this happen through flexible workspaces; we are turning shopping centres on their heads and thinking about how we attract a diverse range of users throughout the day.
