Community Led Placemaking

Community led placemaking is a process that builds community connections and empowerment, through local people leading their own projects and activations. Below are some of our proactive groups working to improve their neighbourhoods.   These include community gardens, neighbourhood groups and town teams.  Town teams are active groups  of businesses, landowners and residents, who work collaboratively to improve their local places, such as their local neighbourhood hub or town centre.  Find fantastic information on establishing Town Teams, prioritising actions, and placemaking quick wins here Town Team Movement.

 If you would like to start a Town Team in your neighbourhood hub, or get started on some local placemaking, get in touch.
