Design guide for community use

CABE has launched a step-by-step guide that shows local communities how to design good public space. It’s Our Space has been published by the Government’s adviser on architecture, urban design and public space to inspire people involved in a public space project for the first time. It includes Spaceshaper — a toolkit that shows communities how to consider the site’s access, use, safety, maintenance needs, design and appearance. CABE Space director Sarah Gaventa said: “We want to give community groups these tools to give them the ambition to imagine a place being not just a little better than it was, but the best it can be.” It’s Our Space has been published as part of the local government’s White Paper ‘Strong and Prosperous Communities’.
