The Evolution of Urban Retail - How Our Town Centres are Changing

In partnership with







Our town centres are changing rapidly. Once driven by high footfall, principally attracted by the draw of mass market shopping, our towns are now needing to evolve to stay attractive and relevant.


“Re-purposing” and “mixed use” are now part of everyday terminology in the town centre owners’ handbook but the delivery of such change is a complex and often costly matter. Improvements and solutions involve increasing office content, leisure and residential but how do we see this trend developing over the next decade and what will the retail element of our town centres look like in 2030?
