A guide to delivering a resilience review

1st November 2013.

We all want to live and work in exciting, attractive towns, villages and cities. The economic recession has impacted significantly though and the rise of out of town retail parks, the internet and generally more demanding, discerning shoppers has left our high streets vulnerable. However our towns are still vitally important, and their future are as a focus for local communities, trade, transport, leisure and town centre living.

It is important to develop an understanding of how our towns operate so that we can fully respond to the challenges and opportunities they face. In order to do this there is a need to undertake some research, which determines the effectiveness of collaboration and partnership working across the local area and what the outcomes of this is for local people and organisations. This forms the basis of a resilience review, and this short guide will take you through it step by step.
