Plymouth District and Local Centres Study

This report has been prepared to assist Plymouth City Council in the preparation of forthcoming policy on retailing in local and district centres. The study will form the basis of the supplementary planning document and will be used to inform any future review of the Core Strategy.

The report examines the vitality and viability of the network of district and local centres in Plymouth, including consideration of their function, gaps in provision and opportunities for intervention. It builds upon previous retail-based evidence commissioned by the Council and is consistent with the most up-to-date national policy advice in PPS4 and the Council's adopted Core Strategy.
