We manage projects that bring people and businesses together at markets and on their high streets

We connect the dots bringing together a strong network and experience from local authorities, community groups and the private sector to develop and deliver projects that impact high streets and neighbourhoods.

We launch and improve  street markets, create  opportunities for businesses enterprise and build communication programmes to reach a wide range of stakeholders. Using a marketing-based approach we develop and manage projects in a no-nonsense, practical way making sense of disparate strands and bringing order to chaos. We think of ourselves as place facilitators. We bring people together to change or improve their place ensuring the approach and outcome is tailored to it; it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach.

We help high streets be more resilient and create opportunities for businesses to thrive

Stakeholder engagement

We identify stakeholders, develop an engagement plan (including comms) and the questionnaires and other tools that run alongside it. We work primarily with businesses from small to global multiples often via BIDs.

Markets and events

We have worked on markets extensively from setting them up from scratch to managing flourishing concerns. We run consultations, create strategies, deliver training and review operations and policy.

Marketing and comms

We develop marketing plans, sharpen messaging and produce engaging content, to ensure your place campaigns are maximised to their full potential and to promote consultations, engaging the right audiences along the way.

Covid-19 recovery

We work on projects that support business recovery and reopening post Covid-19. From engaging with businesses to reviewing existing strategies and plans we reflect on changes that may be needed to help high streets thrive.









We work on neighbourhood high streets, in market towns and city centres across the UK.

We help high streets be more resilient and create opportunities for businesses to thrive, often in places undergoing large scale change. 

We build place brands and marketing campaigns and engage people with their place across a wide range of stakeholders working with local authorities, BIDs, developers. architects, urban designers and others who want to make the most of their place.

Walthamstow High Street was London’s first-ever Night Time Enterprise Zone. We carried out extensive engagement with businesses to understand the current and future night time economy.

A public consultation, working with the council’s Insight Team to devise a trader and customer survey, run drop-in sessions and use the response data to produce a three year strategy for five street markets.
