Victoria Park Community Placemaking

What is Community Placemaking

The workshop commenced with a brief introduction into Community Placemaking, which is a process to:

  • design a public space together with the communities and stakeholders;
  • engage in a collaborative process so that all interests can be addressed in a holistic way; and
  • ensure that the public space is valued and used.

The aim of the Community Placemaking exercise is:

  • To find a shared vision
  • To design an action plan

Process of Victoria Park Community Placemaking

The Victoria Park Community Placemaking exercise has been commissioned by us to build on previous consultation findings and development ideas and to find a way forward together in collaboration with the stakeholders and community representatives of the surrounding areas of the park.

The process follows a number of key stages:

  1. Pre-event screening of stakeholder perceptions
  2. Community event to address first steps (28 Nov 2016)
  3. Five workshops with mixed community group and key thematic topics
  4. Community event to agree Vision and Action Plan (end of January 2017)
  5. Preparation of an Action Plan (mid Feb 2017)

Victoria Park Working Group

Following the completion of the Victoria Park Community Placemaking process in February 2017 Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust, a local environmental charity, offered to facilitate a further series of meetings for a period of six months in order to further develop the Action Plan and the Development Plan that had been drafted by the consultants.

The participants attending the final Community Placemaking session agreed to accept this offer of further facilitation and the Victoria Park Working Group was created and will meet from March to September 2017, at which time the group will be reviewed.

The Working Group is made up of representatives from the following organisations that had participated in the Community Placemaking exercise:

The Terms of Reference for the Working Group and notes from the meetings are listed under the Related Documents section on the right.

If you have any questions about the Working Group please contact Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust on get involved.
