„Whether in a major capital city or a small market town, there are key features of a great night time economy.
  • First, it attracts every sector of the population, regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality or physical or mental ability.
  • Second, it caters for every interest, whether that is eating, drinking, dancing, music, performance or merely gathering.
  • Third, it is attractive to all income groups. Nobody should be excluded from the night time economy on grounds of wealth.
  • Fourth, it should be accessible, whether by public or private transport, or on foot, at all hours.
  • Fifth, it should be safe and amenable, through good signage, lighting, access and security; for a diverse range of users throughout the day and night.
The principles are easy to state. The goals can only be attained through partnership, planning and investment.“
