The role of the town centre or high street has evolved to become less about shops, and more about local amenities, community, a sense of place and their management.
Successful towns embraced their individuality to create a stable community, one that has ownership of its vision, understands its requirements for housing delivery, employment growth, health and wellbeing, connectivity and the confidence to embrace its purpose.
Major owners of town centres are recognising collaboration is key to delivering successful places. This enables sustainable, long term place shaping through strategic, interventionist investment, drawing on the relative strengths of the public and private sectors. Montagu Evans exists to create inspiring places to live, work, communicate and connect. These places are the lifeblood of our local economies and collective wellbeing. We care about legacy, partnerships and people, advising clients with complex planning and development challenges.
