A CASE STUDY ON A MIDLANDS MARKET TOWN - IMPLICATIONS OF PPG6 AND PPG13
The case of Oswestry is discussed where a requirement was identified for improved shopping facilities to prevent the leakage of trade to neighbouring centres. Since 1991 a number of proposals have been submitted for edge-of-town and out-of-town sites. Discussions over a proposed out-of-town application which went to appeal are outlined. The application went against the advice set out in PPG (Planning Policy Guidance) 13 and PPG 6 and was finally dismissed. A number of other applications are still awaiting a decision. The author suggests that although in the short term town centre and edge-of-centre sites may be unattractive, if cars are discouragaed in favour of public transport, in the long term such stores will be a success.
