Placemaking embraces the ideas, energy and capital of local people and works with them to create a collection of places with distinct character and style. 

The Placemaking Strategy 2013-2015 provided the overarching framework to support Placemaking and outlines the Council’s aim to create:

  • Unique districts and places across the city
  • Empowered communities and strong partnerships; and
  • Development of the council as a best practice organisation to better respond to place making initiatives.

A Place Facilitator was appointed to each pilot area to develop the partnership between community and council. The Placemaking approach involved:

  • Building relationships with and connecting property owners, traders, residents and others, understanding their attachment to their place.
  • Talking through aspirations, challenges and opportunities and
  • Facilitating and encouraging projects to see what works and what is possible.
