Dewsbury Strategic Development Framework

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 to 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, awaken interest and create early wins to become the catalyst for the long-term development vision.
