1 Review
In this timely study Richard Evans critically examines the state of British town centres analysing the threats to their existence, the interests shaping their destiny and the prospects for their regeneration. The book begins by charting the evolution of town centres, asking what they are for and whether they still matter. The appearance of our towns is shown to have been transformed by retail, transport, commercial and cultural trends. The final and conclusive part of the book looks at who dominates the relationship between producers and users of towns, and the impact of public policy. Regenerating town centres ends with a survival strategy for the High Street in contemporary Britain.
