The Southside Place Standard (events)

Closed 26 Nov 2016

Opened 15 Nov 2016


How well does the Southside work as a place to live, work and visit? With the help of various Southside organisations, we will be running a series of Place Standard events at the Southside Community Centre.

We will be using the Place Standard tool which will allow you to discuss what’s good about the Southside and what needs be improved.

Why your views matter

Being able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the Southside as a place to live, work and visit is important in shaping our future policies for the area. The idea of holding these events is to listen to what the people of the Southside have to say about their area and address their concerns by taking action.

This is not just another consultation, it is an opportunity to make a difference to the area in which you live, work and visit.

What happens next

Events were held at Southside Community Centre using the Place Standard tool as a basis for our consultation on Tuesday 22nd November and Saturday 26th November.

You can now complete an online survey here (closes 31/12/16).
