The state of Britain's High Streets
29 July 2014
A new report, High Street Performance and Evolution - co-commissioned by the Future High Street Forum and the ESRC - is a brief guide to the evidence on recent high street and town centre performance.
The study was led by Southampton University and funded by the ESRC, gives a summary of high street and town centre performance and outlines the key trends impacting high streets. It has been published ahead of the full Future High Streets Evidence Review.
Working with experts across the field, the Southampton study led by Professor Neil Wrigley and Dr Dionysia Lambiri reviews what robust evidence is available on the trends impacting high streets and town centres, and provides a guide to how those trends have changed, and will continue to change, those vital commercial and social spaces.
