The Pedestrian Pound: Updated report outlining the business case for better streets and places

The first edition of The Pedestrian Pound, prepared by independent experts Just Economics in 2013, has become a much-quoted reference point helping individuals and organisations make the economic case for investing in better streets. Since 2013 further evidence has emerged of the benefits of attractive places where people on foot feel welcome. 

Highlighting this evidence is vital, as many high streets continue to struggle with economic change and rising challenges, such as air pollution and internet shopping. We are therefore delighted that support from Transport Scotland has facilitated a comprehensive and timely update of the original publication. 

Building on the original report the new edition expands the evidence and includes 20 new and updated case studies showing what works, citing examples of best practice from across the UK.
