The Town Centre Futures Conference organised by the Association of Town & City Management, supported by the Department of Social Development, North Down Borough Council and Springboard, seeks to explore the future of our urban centres and re-ignite the passion for their renewal.
With speakers from Ireland, England and Scotland joined by participants from Wales, it seeks to address questions such as:
• Can the barriers and constraints to stimulate growth throughout our urban centres be unlocked?
• Can a positive role for our town and city centres be visualised and partnerships needed to achieve that vision be created?
