Encouraging a thriving and diverse night-time economy | A report for the Portman Group

October 16, 2017

A vibrant and attractive night-time economy is important for many towns and cities across the UK. But it must be safe, well managed and welcoming for all members of the community. And a buzzing high-street atmosphere cannot be ruined by intimidating alcohol-related anti-social behaviour. 

We were commissioned by the Portman Group – the voice of the UK's alcohol industry charged with promoting responsible drinking – to work in-depth with two UK towns which have created dynamic, effective partnerships to tackle their own issues and create thriving and welcoming town centres. The output of this research is this report, and a practical toolkit for local authorities or any other organisations involved in developing their NTE and looking for ideas to engage with local stakeholders and residents.You can read the full report below:
