Newtown Neighbourhood Green Consultation 01

Activity: Other


The first of three consultation events working with members of the Newtown community to gather data to guide the design and purpose of the new park. This event was with members of the local youth club and they were asked to masking tape a plan of the park on the floor of the community centre and to add things that they think should be in the park. They also filled out a questionnaire that urged them to think about what kind of relationship that they would like to form with this new space rather than items that should be included (e.g. play equipment.)

• Changed attitudes about how an outside space can be designed and improved
• Gave people a say in how this important new asset will be designed
• Increased awareness of imaginative processes
• Building further trust between tenants and residents and Tai Calon Community Housing
