We can offer a range of consultancy services and training:
Quick impact workshops - We can help you initiate your Community Placemaking project with a one to three day intensive site analysis. This includes presentations on Placemaking to key stakeholders, a community place evaluation workshop and short report capturing issues, ideas and next steps. This is a good way to get started and can use the momentum of public interest and support as a way to launch a more in-depth place transformation process. We will tailor the workshop to meet your needs and resources.
Site analysis - Understanding how a place works (or why it isn’t working) is crucial to successful Community Placemaking. We have a range of well-established techniques for carrying out observations and presenting them in a format that supports place planning.
Placemaking plans - Drawing on the results of Community Placemaking workshops, site analysis and wider consultation, we can develop a Placemaking vision and activation plan that focuses on both design and management actions needed to revitalise an existing public space or to create a successful new space. This plan is presented in a clear, user-friendly way and can be used to draw in further support to your placemaking project. (We can develop plans for single spaces, streets, neighbourhoods or whole settlements.)
