    Abstract

    Out-of-town shopping is a contentious topic. The large-scale developments cause widely documented sociological, economic and environmental impacts. These impacts have been so large, that the Government has even changed policy to try to rectify the situation. One of the newest such out-of-town centres is the Castlepoint Centre in North Bournemouth. The area already has six retail venues which cater for all. How will this new development change the retail structure in the area? Will it alter anything significantly or will it find its place in the market and not cause harm to other retailers? Methods of investigation will include using both quantitative and qualitative data to try to come to some understanding of the impacts. This will then be gauged against national results to see whether Castlepoint, different in nature from other out-of-town shopping centres, has been successful in arguably its main goal of trade in diversion.
