The Strategic development Framework for the Town Centre was commissioned in 2009 by Kirklees Council and Yorkshire Forward. Working in a large multidisciplinary team in close collaboration with the community and all stakeholder we developed a 30 years regeneration strategy that was owned by the community and the Town Team that we helped t establish throughout the duration of our engagement to deliver the projects. We developed three methodologies that proved popular in other projects:“Picture & Story” – a creative engagement method,. and a “Stepping Stones” approach – a series of temporary events and installation organised on a small budget to build momentum, awake interest and create early wins to become the catalyst for the long-term development vision.
