Place Creative specialises in place strategy, co-design, data collection and analysis, to support decision-making across all scales of urban development.
From town centre revitalisation strategies to community group action plans, we navigate bureaucracy, broker opportunities, and connect people, organisations, and everything in between, to enable places to thrive.
Know where you are going and why.
We work alongside you to set a clear direction for your place; articulating the vision, objectives, challenges, and opportunities, weaving together intricate elements into a strategy which is easy to digest and action.
We facilitate projects which take an iterative approach to city building. Using small-scale interventions to demonstrate long term change, we bring communities along on the journey through a co-design approach, helping them reimagine our streets as places for people. We round off projects with a rigorous evaluation process which can build the basis for future business cases and investment.
We look carefully at the impacts of our projects from start to finish. We create bespoke feedback tools and get them in front of the right people, and collect data on the ground to find out how a place is working. We specialise in meaningful data analysis to show the full picture.
We get to know everyone with a stake in the place, and facilitate good conversations that ensure community needs and desires are heard. We specialise in simplifying complex concepts and projects, and using creative techniques to communicate them.
Whether you're seeking a creative eye, a delivery partner, or a community whisperer, we bring the right people to your place. We can navigate bureaucracy, and work with you to connect skills and talents with opportunities for enlivening places.
We use our experience in spatial design and knowledge of how people use places to analyse what's working, what's not, and what can be improved. Along with community engagement this work informs place strategies, approaches to wayfinding, place activation tactics and funding recommendations.
