Published on

Rapidly changing trends in consumer spending are influencing the planning and design of retail centres - nationally and internationally. Broader community benefits of placemaking are also influencing government policy. This presentation will combine this “carrot and stick” to propose 10 short and medium term actions for centres in the city, suburbs and townships of the Toowoomba Regional Council. To help them benefit from this rapidly changing context. My presentation will include images of national and international best practice, video interviews, statistics and sources of additional information.
