This presentation seeks to demonstrate the evolving relationship between supply and demand for retailing services by integrating newly available data within a carefully specified classification methodology, for over 3,000 centres in Great Britain. This in turn provides a multidimensional and dynamic taxonomy of consumption spaces. Using non-hierarchical clustering techniques, the results are presented in the form of a two-tier classification with five distinctive ‘coarse’ clusters and fifteen more detailed and nested sub-clusters. The paper concludes that more nuanced and dynamic classifications of this kind can help deliver more effective, policy-relevant insights into changing role of retailing and consumer services in urban areas across space and through time. All staff welcome to attend.
