What next - Try and engage with as many stakeholders as possible using tried and tested methods but also by finding new methods. Rheanne Holm presented Commonplace which is an online tool that reaches wider audiences and provides real-time dashboards to see ‘the heartbeat’ of an area. As part of the LFA last year, PTE set up a Commonplace website to engage with the community and discover what people thought of the Regent’s Canal towpath which surrounds our offices in Islington https://pte.commonplace.is/
