We’re delighted to share with you a new booklet we have contributed to – Why Places Matter – which makes the case for giving communities a voice in shaping their places.

Produced by Living Streets with the People and Places Coalition, of which The Glass-House is a member, the booklet is being sent to all councils in England and offers a practical manifesto for councillors and communities on how they can transform the places where they live.

The booklet also includes signposting to useful information and tools that can help communities and local councils work together effectively to shape their neighbourhoods.

Download the booklet.

The People and Places Coalition was convened by Living Streets and includes Age UK, English Heritage, Keep Britain Tidy, Civic Voice, the Cabe team at Design Council, Sustrans and The Glass-House.
