Community Engagement Update
Effective community and stakeholder engagement, involvement can bring real benefits in terms of promoting, managing and regenerating heritage. But specialist skills are required to do it properly. Where community engagement is undertaken without such skills, it is often tokenistic or ineffective and can have damaging consequences.

Getting it right

This guide sets out to help historic towns and other sensitive destinations coexist with tourism, an industry with a turnover of £30 billion, contributing four per cent of the GNP and supporting close on one and a half million jobs.  The underlying theme throughout this guide is the need to reconcile these very real benefits with the impact on the environment and the host community.  The visitor has not been forgotten either: happy visitors, who take away treasured memories of a place, are a sign of a successful and well managed industry.  Without attention to the needs of hosts, visitors and the environment, tourism's continued grwoth may not be sustainable into the next century.

Shopfronts and Adverts in Historic Towns

Shopfronts and Avertisements in Historic Towns

Report 06

This booklet is still relevant to todays conservationists, developers and retailers concerned with maintaining quality in the town centre environment. 

Produced at a time of growing concern over the quality of the town centre environment, with increasing competition from highly accessible out-of-town shopping centres, it has become more and more important that the traditional town centre should be attractive and project an image of quality.  As town centres contain a greater variety of speciality shops as well as a good deal of architectural and historic interest, they have potentially more to offer than out of town centres.  Emphasis on good quality design, including the design of shopfronts and advertisements, will encourage investment and spending and will bring rewards which will ultimately benefit all of the traders in the centre.

Shopfronts and Advertisments in Historic Towns sets out the principles of good shopfront design.  It recognises and accepts that companies have invested a great deal to promote their own corporate images, while asking retailers to recognise that historic towns also invest a great deal in their own historic buildings and on the quality of their environment.

This document is intended to act as a forum for discussion and co-operation between local authorities and retailers, with the ultimate aim of improving the environmental quality of traditional shopping centres.
