How can you leverage digital tools to co-design places with your residents?

The work done by our local councils’ planning and regeneration departments is key to providing residents with accessible, sustainable, and attractive living places.

Over the last few years, these teams have started to harness various digital tools to involve residents in the decision-making process and listen to their voices to co-create the urban places we live in.

We invited two London Councils to discuss the various tools they use and to share their thoughts on the benefits of tech for planning and regeneration projects.

Jonathan McClue, Principal Planning Officer at the London Borough of Camden, expanded on the digital playbook they are co-designing and how it fits in with the central government’s recent white paper on planning. Eleni Katrini, Senior Regeneration Manager at the London Borough of Newham, shared insights on how they have leveraged public insights to inform reporting and decision-making.

We'll share the recording of the session and an article with the key take-aways shortly.


Guests:

Eleni Katrini is a designer and researcher with experience in academia, local government, private and voluntary sector. She is currently holding a position as a Senior Regeneration Manager at Newham council, working on developing strategies for Newham’s high streets based on evidence and co-design.

Jonathan McClue is a Principal Planning Officer at the London Borough of Camden, responsible for major developments within the development management service. Jonathan is passionate about community consultation and helped pioneer Camden’s remote Development Management Forum process, which is a formal part of Camden’s pre-application consultation procedure on large and strategic schemes.
