The shopping centre has become an established feature of urban structure over the past thirty years. Development of centres has been rapid and little attempt has been made to consider the development process and the problems caused by it. There is a growing awareness that centres are not always wholly beneficial to their host cities and that some public policy control is necessary.

This book examines the shopping centre development process and analyses the control policies which have been taken and which are needed. It draws on material from throughout the developed world.
