About Creating Communities Together


The Creating Communities Together project grew from a series of discussions between companies who often work together on development projects.

Many such conversations are taking place across the country; conversations about how to regenerate town centres, how to provide much needed affordable housing, and how to build more resilient communities for a sustainable future.

Early on, the decision was taken to explore solutions by working on specific projects with local partners to try and find new approaches to particular problems through a series of case studies.

With all projects, deliverability is the central challenge. How can the projects that communities want to see happen be made viable?

If you would like to be involved, either through partnership working on a specific case study or through contributing particular knowledge or expertise, please do get in touch.
