Global Lessons On Improving Town Fortunes

 

The places where we live have a significant impact on our social, economic, environmental and democratic wellbeing. In the UK and Ireland, where millions of us live in small and medium-sized towns, the health of our towns is of critical importance to the wellbeing of many.

This report sets out a clear policy framework for understanding and developing a narrative about how the fortunes of a town might be transformed, highlighting key lessons and themes that appear across the eight international case studies, focusing on the most salient points for policymakers and practitioners in the UK.
