The Creating Places Academy
We are, as ever, delighted to support our partners at The Create Streets Foundation, in their work which focuses on improving how we live by influencing and improving plans for where we live.
The new Creating Places Academy is a programme of training packages and resources designed to help local authorities and neighbourhood groups better use design codes, research and co-design to create strong, healthy and popular places, for the long-term.
The Creating Places Academy programme provides a range of free videos and action-orientated, cost-price training modules. These summarise years of research and practical ‘on-the-ground’ experience on how to create local and neighbourhood plans that support happy, healthy and popular places, for the long term.
It offers everything from generic materials based on what ‘tends to be true’ (accessible below) to a personalised half day workshop based on an analysis of your needs and challenges. The Foundation appreciates that budgets are under pressure and all prices below are at cost to help your funds stretch as far as possible. Thanks to support from our donors, it are also able to offer reduced fees for clients in neighbourhoods which face high socio-economic challenge.
