How citizens can get involved
We’re working with citizens and colleagues to make sure that everyone has a stake in the place where they live, work or visit. We’re using a tool called the “Place Standard”. This is a way of helping to get conversations going about any place (it could be your street, neighbourhood or town), by using some simple questions. Find out which neighbourhoods are already using the Place Standard and learn more about how to get involved:
