The presence of effective formal or informal partnerships is particularly relevant in contemporary urban and/or local governance settings. Based on Le Feuvre et al (2016: 56) a place partnership is “often a very diffuse and amorphous agglomeration of groups from public, private and voluntary sectors, with different ethea, mindsets, perspectives, modus operandi etc.”.

Partnerships is one of 237 factors that have been identified as influencing the vitality and viability of the high street.
