LDC launches Tool Kit for Portas’ ‘Town Teams’

LDC Town Tool KitFebruary 2012 saw the highest level of shop vacancy rates on record, with 14.6% of shops on the UK’s high streets sitting empty.

The Portas Review identified the need for change with an underlying theme of ‘adapt or die’.  To support anyone involved in implementing the changes recommended in the Portas Review, the Local Data Company (LDC) has launched the ‘Town Tool Kit’.

The Tool Kit comprises data and insight which the LDC says will help town centres better understand how they are evolving against national trends.  The data on offer include an occupancy profile, footfall analysis, socioeconomic and demographic information and further details are available from the LDC.
