Working with Revo, the national membership organisation for retail property and placemaking, we're undertaking a long-term research project to identify the key issues and challenges facing town centres and the high street, and highlight initial views as to the initiatives/actions/funding that can help with their regeneration, repurposing and revitalisation.

Stage 1 – survey and initial findings

Earlier this year we conducted an online survey which collated the views of over 200 experts and advisers across the public and private sectors. The findings of which are available to download now.

Stage 2 - workshops

We’re currently undertaking a series of invitation only workshops with representatives from the public and private sectors to ‘dive deeper’ into the key findings, issues and themes of the Stage 1 research.

Stage 3 - Final report

The final research paper, which will draw on the outputs of our online survey and workshops to identify best practice and innovative approaches to help ‘fix’ some of our struggling town centres, will be published in early 2020.

To discuss the findings of our Stage 1 report in more detail or to take part in our workshops, please get in touch.
