In this long read Janet Sillett looks at what makes a place a place, what makes some places work and others not, how councils chart the story of their places and respond to the changes that inevitably happen. Read the full long read on Shorthand Social
How has local government been represented in fiction through different periods?

In this report, produced with support from Portman Group, we have drawn on case studies from across England and Wales to develop 5 recommendations to help local authorities to develop vibrant and diverse night time economies.
