Last night we went along to a workshop with Placed & the University of Liverpool to get the ball rolling on some of these ideas. We were joined by others who have worked on regeneration and community projects across the city, such as Welsh Streets and Homebaked, to start coming up with some ideas for a new vision for our city centre. During the discussion, Atul Bansal illustrated these suggestions to create a visual map from Bold Street down to Derby Square, which will be on display in Ed’s Place once it opens to get people talking and thinking about possibilities for the future. It was a great evening and we were really pleased to be part of the conversation about how regeneration can have a positive impact for people living and working in the local area.
Ed’s Place will be open from Thursday 28th August until Sunday 23rd September and you can find out more on the Placed website. We’ll be helping out at the George Henry Lee building for a few days and possibly running our own workshop so watch this space for more news and make sure you come down to have your say on the future of our city.
