Description

This is a contribution to the literature on retail planning and the circumvention of national policies by local authorities.In Western Europe, one of the most contested kinds of urban development is the out-of-town shopping center. Pointing to the U.S. experience, these are viewed as threats to the vitality of traditional town centers, and are often actively discouraged by planning legislation. This notwithstanding, ever-larger shopping malls continued to be built throughout the 1990s. This work takes an institutional approach in its investigation of mall expansion in the Netherlands, Germany, and the United Kingdom at the end of the twentieth century, asking what factors were crucial in influencing the decision-making process to approve development, and how local actors utilized, manipulated, or circumvented national policy and local opportunity structures.
