How We Can Help

Urban places that balance the social, economic, environmental and cultural will always attract and engage people.

At Place Partners we believe each city, town, street and public space has a unique identity that can be built on to create meaningful relationships between the people who use these spaces and the places themselves. We believe that a successful people place is a living system of relationships where each element plays an important role in the making of the whole. It is a civic ecosystem made up of a balance of social, economic, environmental and cultural aspects (SEEC). It is difficult to know how the removal of even one element might impact the whole. Like a game of pick-up sticks, the infrastructure of the place (soft and hard) could hold together with any number of its elements removed, or fall apart if a single relationship is altered.

Our place making approach has several clear stages; investigation and research, strategy development and implementation planning. We use the tools of community engagement, urban revitalisation, landscape assessment and place activation to deliver better places for people.
