The 2018 to 2019 Making Places initiative aims to encourage communities to positively and actively contribute to the development of their local places.
Making Places represents a broadening of the charrette mainstreaming programme to support communities at all stages of their thinking. In all cases, projects coming forward to access support should be able to demonstrate a strong emphasis on tackling inequality, and will have a clear ambition to combat disadvantage through community activity and creative thinking.
The Making Places initiative offers two funding options:
The Place Standard Conversations Fund will support communities who are keen to develop their understanding of place and build their skills and confidence.
The Community-led Design Fund will support communities to participate in and lead design events, such as workshops and charrettes.
