Why public realm is the key to saving the high street


There's one 'deft design move' that's outside the remit of architects, planners, developers and local authorities - the need to ensure that the attractions of e-commerce aren't artificially inflated by an outdated fiscal regime that's favoring the likes of Amazon over the high street competition - that seems to have falsely distorted the economics of retail trade, and which can only be corrected if national politicians don't assume that an e-commerce free-for-all is good for their popularity.
