Do It

make sure our town centres balance

Dan Thompson

We reckon every town or city centre needs a mix of four things; Shops, Work, Civic and Social.

We need shops, both useful ones and ones that are fun to shop in, and we need places to work, especially ones that make something. We need social spaces, like the coffee shop and the handy bench in the street, and we need the more formal civic functions, from the library to the dentist, which help build a community.

Get the balance right and you’ve got a futureproof town centre.
