Engagement with community groups &

stakeholders

Part of our engagement involved building links with key community groups. Our workshop series presented the opportunity for these groups to address a wider audience within the local community about their projects, and to seed ideas for collaboration for projects and community events to support the high street. We met personally with a series of community organisations in and around Roman Road to gather their opinion on the needs of the high street and to discuss future collaboration possibilities. We built strong links with over 20 local groups: Rich Mix. School & Outreach Officer Tracy Barbe. Tracy attended all our events and has helped bring about collaboration between Rich Mix, RRT and New London Architecture on a youth engagement project about the built environment.
