The grammar of change

6 Sep 2017

In this lively account of visits to Big Local areas in Kent, Blackpool, Leicester and Doncaster, author David Boyle examines the powerful stories of the residents involved and challenges established ideas about what it takes to create local change.

The fear of regret sometimes paralyses people from doing anything at all, because to have done nothing means you have to regret nothing.

Stephen, Arches Big Local area, Kent.
