"Next chief blames incompetent councils for failing to regenerate high streets"

Link to The Guardian

"The head of fashion chain Next has blamed 'incompetent' local councils, who are resistant to change, for the grim state of some of the country's high streets, as he revealed 'quiet' trading since January.

"Lord Wolfson, a Conservative peer and government adviser, said:
"There is a big opportunity to grow retail in the UK by providing people with better shops. [There are] many towns and cities where the stock of shops is inadequate.

Some high streets have been neglected for 20 or 30 years and those are the ones that will die."
