The Enterprising City Centre reveals exemplars of local partnership working, the development and delivery
of realistic implementation plans, and the range of instruments available to create both an improved

centres. That this was largely delivered in Manchester within a five year period of intensive development
and renewal activity amply demonstrates the value of such experience for wider dissemination.
