Survey: How Can Developers Build Trust With Communities Ahead Of Major Schemes?
Placemaking is a key element of all major new developments today. But as well as creating a scheme that appeals to potential tenants and investors, developers have to engage with the most important group of all: the local community where the new scheme will be created. That includes local residents, businesses and politicians.
