Future sub-centres book
Sub-centres occur normally outside city centres, providing offices to serve a daytime population of professional people, or businesses, who do not need to be in the city centre. Sub-centres rely on good connections by public transport and road, both with the city centre and with other sub-centres. They have the potential for imaginative planning and design, with none of the restraints associated with developing within the historic core areas. Many now provide shops, restaurants, hotels and residential accommodation.
