Help us transform Providence Place Gardens area
Paula Goncalves - Brighton & Hove City Council
Brighton & Hove City Council is looking to transform the area around Ann Street and Providence Place Gardens (the small park opposite St Bartholomew’s Church) into a lively, safe and successful public space and we need your help.
In early 2012 we launched a competition for ideas to turn the area into a well-used space that will benefit the local community and the London Road area as a whole.
The winning idea will be implemented and tested on site in the first two weeks of October 2012.
Ann Street & Providence Place Gardens now & the winning idea
During these two weeks we will use a series of innovative ‘placemaking’ techniques to assess user response to the transformation and identify what aspects of the transformation should be considered for long-term implementation.
We are now looking to recruit volunteers willing to give their time freely (no fee or expenses paid) to carry out fieldwork during the two-week transformation. The fieldwork will involve mainly observing the behaviour and interviewing people using the area.
Training on ‘placemaking’ principles and evaluation techniques will be provided to recruited volunteers. Attendance at and successful completion of the training session is required.
Equal opportunity/diversity is promoted by Brighton & Hove City Council.
