Places

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 local authorities, architects, property companies and others who care about place

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.

Street market strategy

We’ve worked on markets extensively from setting them up from scratch to managing flourishing concerns. We also conduct reviews to identify improvements and offer advice on best practice.

Marketing communications

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.
