How to Manage Town Centre - cleaner, safer, greener
This guide is for everyone whose work makes town centres cleaner, safer and greener. It is for all those who labour to make their local areas better places to live – especially in the evening and at night – whether by policing them, cleaning them, or providing essential services such as street signs, planning and regulation. Communities are complex and interdependent: the work of the police affects the work of the fire service, the work of the planning department affects the work of the people who maintain the streets. When all these organisations work together, co-ordinating their powers and resources, they can transform their effectiveness. They can transform their communities. This guide offers practical help towards that goal, showing how existing powers and money can be used to accomplish more. It is divided into three parts: Part 1 explains the practical challenges and problems of town centres – and their night-time economies – and suggests ways of approaching them. Part 2 explains the tools that are available and outlines ways of using them, illustrated by practical examples. Part 3 summarises the legislation relating to each aspect of managing a town centre, along with sources of advice for using it.
