Publisher: Routledge | pages: 304 | 2006 | ISBN: 0415354536 | CHM | 13,5 mb
Towns and cities in Britain have seen many changes in shopping facilities over the last 40 years. Planning for Retail Development explores how planning policy has evolved over the last four decades, and how it has affected retail property development. Clifford Guy also critically examines current policy and the assumptions upon which it is founded. Planning for Retail Development explains key events and debates in the evolution of retail planning policy, at central and local government levels, since the 1960s and draws contrasts between the 1980s, a period in which retail developers were encouraged by central government to expand away from town centers, and the more recent emphasis on protection and promotion of town centers as the most appropriate location for new development.
