The Institute of Place Management (IPM)
Warwickshire Towns Network is a member of, and works closely with, the team at IPM, a partnership comprised of experts from retail, business, policy making, place management and academia.
As the international professional body and learned society for people who serve places, members benefit from professional recognition, access to resources and events, a subscription to the Journal of Place Management and Development.
For Warwickshire, this connection enabled a programme of activity which engaged stakeholders from all over the county in a review of Warwickshire's towns within the IPM's framework.
The project offered a collective understanding of the research and data available to forecast trends, evidence need and identify local action, which can be enabled by Warwickshire Towns Network. All of the resources for the project are available via the Institute of Place Management.
