There has been good progress in recent weeks across Chichester in compiling a baseline assessment of the whole city using the PLACE technique.
This is an analytical method that allows groups of residents to record issues that matter to them, all linked to the topics of Planning, Landscape, Architecture, Culture and Engineering (PLACE). These records are compiled by drawing simple maps and writing notes. Assessments take no longer than 2-3 hours. The results will be an important input to the neighbourhood plan.
We have already got two areas complete (East Broyle and Southern Gateway) and another six areas have come forward to say they will run a PLACE assessment over the next few weeks.
The completed PLACE assessments are at the bottom of the page.
We are now keen for other neighbourhood groups, resident associations, or other groups of willing volunteers to provide PLACE assessment results for the areas on the attached map yet to be covered. The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group is keen to have full PLACE coverage of the city by the end of June.
To take part, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description of the area you intend to cover so we can add to the map and avoid duplication.
