TELL US WHAT YOU THINK: More events, buses, parking, rates - how can we improve Norwich for shoppers and visitors?
A new report by retail expert and TV star Mary Portas today throws the spotlight on the future of our town and city centres.
But what do you think? How can we ensure Norwich remains a thriving shopping centre and continues to develop?
Tell us your ideas and give us your comments on shopping in Norwich for a special report in tomorrrow's Evening News.
Ms Portas, star of the BBC programme Mary Queen of Shops, is expected to suggest regulations on high street traders are axed, including restrictions on night-time deliveries, put in place to minimise noise for local residents.
It is understood that Ms Portas has decided against backing a moratorium on out-of-town retail developments, a measure some business groups believe would give a huge boost to town centre shops.
The report is expected to propose plans for a national market day in a bid to promote indoor or outdoor markets and help drive traffic towards shops.
Ms Portas is also expected to recommend that licensing rules for market stalls should be relaxed to make it easier for people to set up stands in their local high street.
