Building on success - report (2015)

  • By London Councils

'Building on Success - London's Town Centres' sets out a series of recommendations that would enable and incentivise local authorities to take leadership over the economies and placemaking of their town centres. 

London Councils believes that a variety of solutions are needed to continue the growth and success of London's town centres and that more powers should be given to local government to design interventions that respond to local opportunities and challenges as they arise.

The economic success of London’s various local centres and high streets will be reliant on different factors in different locations. This makes it difficult to create a centralised policy response to the challenges and opportunities that different high streets face. However, providing boroughs and local stakeholders with the tools they need to respond to the differing circumstances of their local town centres will bring about positive outcomes for the capital.
