Abstract: To manage increased competition cooperation between stakeholders has become more important. Retailer’s role is well researched. Property owner’s role is not well researched. The aim is to analyse different stakeholder’s erceptions of what property owners contribute with and could contribute with in managing the town centre. Many stakeholders look at the property owner’s role as crucial for town centre development. Property owners do not see that they can contribute significantly to the development. The main reasons for this opinion are that they look at them self to have to small amount of properties to make a difference in the town development.

Keywords: town centre management; property owners; added value
