The means: urban services

We know how to make your place special and distinctive.

We have specific knowledge in every aspect of placemaking. We can undertake research to establish robust evidence of need; create your plan, policy or strategy; mobilise partners around it; implement it and then evaluate it afterwards. Or perhaps you would like to bring a means Placemaker into your team. We can:

  • Give your town centre or neighbourhood a ‘health check’
  • Advise on policy changes to boost the local economy
  • Write and manage your cultural strategy, including oversight of creative interventions & events
  • Design and implement ‘smarter travel’ and air-quality improvement projects
  • Oversee public realm and other physical schemes, including ‘meanwhile’ uses
  • Help you access funding for your projects
  • including from local and national government, and from the EU
  • Conceive and deliver an innovative and wide-ranging consultation/engagement strategy
  • Construct fit-for-purpose partnerships and other vehicles
