The rapid advances in retailing during the latter part of the 2oth century have led to pressures for new forms of shopping development and conflicts with established planning policy on the location of new stores and centres. In response to these pressures, various methods have been devised to assess the potential impact of new retail developments on existing centres. This book reviews the methodology and emphasises a recommended best practice approach to the application of retail impact assessment.
The book shows why and how the current approaches to retail impact assessment need to be improved. It includes examples from all the major retail sectors, for example foodstores, retail warehouses, factory outlet centres and regional shopping centres.

Industry Reviews

"The usefulness of "Retail Impact Assessment is threefold. First, it provides a handbook for those involved in impact studies. By explaining previous methodologies and presenting, in detail, a proposed extension to existing approaches, it enables planners, retailers, and their consultants to understand and undertake retail assessment exercises. Second, the book provides students with an easily accessible summary and review of approaches to planning policy for large stores in the U.K. Finally, the book provides a stimulus for further research. The weaknesses of the process of gaining permission for new stores are all too obvious, and research is needed on improving the techniques for measuring the dynamics of spatial competition in retailing. England's book implicitly makes the case for a major research effort into better understanding of the processes and dynamics of retail competition.." -"The Professional Geographer "This book is a best-practice guide to assessment of retail impact.." -Choice, September 2001 "Trying to show why and how current approaches to assessing retail impact needs to be improved, the author offers examples from all retail sectors, including warehouses, outlet centers, and regional shopping centers." -Business Horizons May-June 2002
