Lively, diverse, intense cities contain the seeds of their own regeneration, with energy enough to carry over for problems and needs outside themselves. Jane Jacobs
Breathing life and vitality into existing places is as important as planning new, arguably more so. It requires the careful integration of a delicate balance of information and interests, strategy and skills, whilst retaining an overall perspective of the potential of a place.
Place-based projects are rooted in the context of their specific environment – in time, as well as space. KMA has a track record of integrating physical proposals with economic and social programmes, to regenerate communities over the long term. This involves maximising the beneficial linkage between different strands of strategy and policy action and ensuring the public, private sector and community players are capable of delivery in harness with each other, as funding becomes available.
