(p.183) Eleven The night-time economy: exploring tensions between agents of control
Securing an urban renaissance

This chapter examines the tensions between agents of control in the management of the night-time economy (NTE) and town centres in Great Britain. It suggests that while the NTE has risen to a mainstay of post-industrial urban economies, it is also producing some of the public disorder targeted under new campaigns for urban liveability. The chapter also provides insights into the crucial and hitherto under-researched aspect of the NTE, the relationship between CCTV operators and door staff, across a Pubwatch scheme.

Keywords:   night-time economy, town centres, agents of control, Great Britain, public disorder, urban liveability, CCTV operators, door staff, Pubwatch scheme
