Good place making is all about collaboration. The Place team works with businesses and community to pilot projects that responds to local need. Whether it’s an art installation, a market, new seating or lighting, we create more vibrant, connected, safe places.

Through a place making framework, we work to celebrate and improve these unique places. We undertake research and connect with our community to understand how our town and village centres are operating. When we know what’s working – and what isn’t – we can make positive change.
