Will Free Parking Save Bridge Road?
Article extract

Working at Tract Consultants near Bridge road in Richmond gives me a front-row seat on the city’s sad trend of high-street decline. Every day, I watch one of the city’s key retail strips slowly lose tenants. Walking to get my lunch, I often pass three or four empty shops in a row – and the ones that are still open are having closing-down sales. My guess is that 30% of the shops are vacant.

This decline has been going on for a while, but yesterday I noticed a new sign of desperation: a number of shops on the street are displaying this poster in their windows.
