Revitalising town centres: a handbook for council leadership

This handbook and the accompanying online toolkit offer guidance on how to approach the revitalisation of town and city centres by delivering long-term impacts and using broad principles that can be tailored to meet local needs.

The handbook was informed by a LGA-led seminar of senior practitioners in November 2017 and it has been compiled jointly with the People & Places Partnership. It is intended to provide a high level overview to guide councils in taking a strategic and evidence-based approach. The handbook contains suggestions of further reading, helpful resources and examples of good practice that can be accessed through a more extensive and detailed online toolkit.
