Future Place

Future Place copyright  Nerea Bermejo Olaizola

The Future Place programme run by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH), Local Government Association (LGA), Homes England and Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) - is a joint, two-phase initiative which will unlock placemaking potential at local level through quality in design, future thinking, and knowledge sharing. The programme has been designed to promote best practice and the potential of innovative delivery, design and funding models, cross-sector collaborations capacity building, and knowledge sharing at a local level.

All five Future Places are determined to deliver meaningful change which will enhance people’s lives, improve community wellbeing and create sustainable environments. While each place is very different, they all work in collaboration with public, private or voluntary sector partners to develop and advance innovative placemaking strategies. They will now take part in a programme to develop visions for their areas, with training and expert advice from each of the Future Places project partners.
