Frome, Somerset, Saturday November 17th 2012
What kind of places do we want to live and work in? Is there an alternative to so-called ‘big box’ retailing? How do we ensure that regeneration and redevelopment include a central role for independent business and the interests of local people? And how do we keep a lid on the huge expansion of supermarkets via campaigning, the planning system, and local politics?
For one day of workshops, speaker-led sessions and more, all these questions will on the agenda, in the Somerset town of Frome – one of many frontlines of the struggle to keep our communities thriving and unique.
