City Centre Performance

Town centres are facing a greater number of challenges than ever before, from out of town shopping, parking costs, occupancy costs and the continuing growth of online behaviour. The combination of these factors makes it ever more important to identify whether the changes in a towns performance are the result of local trends and/or initiatives, to whether they are due to wider regional or national rends to which all towns and cities are subject to.
