Who will save our town centres? with guest speaker Julian Dobson

Who Will Save our Town Centres?


Julian Dobson,

Urban pollinator, sense maker, writer and editor


The 'death of the high street' has been a theme of public and political angst for more than half a century. Julian Dobson, author of the newly published book 'How to Save Our Town Centres', spoke at two events in April 2015 at Bangor University and Cardiff University. There he discussed the kind of investments which will create places where people want to live and socialise - and in his book he seeks to identify who really are the true investors in our towns and cities.
