Town Centres

Planit-X can help local authorities, partnerships and communities improve the vitality and viability of their town centres by supporting the preparation of town centre strategies.

Town Centre Audit

A Planit-X town centre audit will provide a clear understanding of the scale and quality of existing provision of retail and other key town centres uses; the network and role of different centres; and their vitality and viability and how it has changed over time.

Qualitative and Quantitative Needs Assessment

Planit-X can assess the qualitative and quantitative need for new retail, leisure and offices floor space. Both have a role to play in reaching an overall judgement about the scale and form of development which should be planned for.

Identifying Development Opportunities

Having identified a need we can find appropriate sites and prepare development briefs for them.

Sequential site studies

Planit-X can undertake a sequential site assessment of alternative development options.

Impact Assessment

We can help measure and where possible quantify the impact of new development on the vitality and viability of town centres.

Car Parking Strategies

The quantity and distribution of car parking and its management can impact upon the performance of the town centre , traffic, and income from parking tariffs. Planit-X recognises the competing requirements of users, car park providers, town centre businesses and other stakeholders in the preparation of town centre car parking strategy.

Town Centre Health-Checks

A regular Planit-X Health Check provides a means of monitoring town centre changes over time, and provides a good understanding of its resilience to change, and to gauge the impact of new developments.
