Land Use Review II: Co-creation portal

We don’t feel this this is a project we should create alone. Instead we want to use this space, and others, to open up the whole of the Land Use Review II development process to you.

Below, we’ve set out our areas of thinking – grouped around the different themes of our land use. They are incomplete drafts – and we invite you to comment, make suggestions on what should be included, disagree with us, and share projects and ideas which inspire you.

Ultimately we have no idea what the end result of this process may be – we’re simply showcasing the framework that will allow us to work towards the future, and inviting you to work alongside us to fill in the blanks. We hope that the projects we undertake prove of use and value to our estate – whilst allowing a much wider audience to learn from both our successes and our (inevitable) failures.

In addition to this process, some feedback was gathered at our recent Open House event – you can read it here.

How does this work?

Simply select a topic that interests you, read our thinking so far, and leave your feedback in the comments section.  You can return to this page and comment on as many sections as you like.
