Strategic Review of Town Centres and Retailing in the TAYplan Area 05/12/13 Roderick McLean Associates on behalf of TAYplan

In spring 2013 TAYplan commissioned Roderick MacLean Associates Ltd to prepare a Strategic Review of Town Centres and Retailing in the TAYplan Area.

This research informed the TAYplan Main Issues Report (2014) on key strategic issues associated with town centres in the TAYplan area. The review requires a holistic approach to town centre policy and not simply focus on retailing. For example, this requires looking at factors such as attractiveness of town centres as places to visit, invest and live and work. In addition, the exercise suggests a consistent and standardised method of collecting data on town centres to monitor the health of the centres.
