How it works for residents...

Some of our Case studies...

    East Shoreditch


    Commonplace is providing the foundation for a neighbourhood plan in East Shoreditch. It has already been described as a gold standard in engagement.



    We are working with housing association Poplar Harca to improve the Devon's Road area of Poplar. A group of resident 'champions are leading the project.

    West Hampstead


    In West Hampstead, we are supporting final consultation on the local development plan. The project was recently featured in an article on West Hampstead Life

    East Shoreditch

    "Commonplace provides valuable data, and helps start new conversations with residents. It provides quick & easy solutions. Commonplace is creating a solid foundation for our plan by capturing what people say." Will Nutland, East Shoreditch


    "We have used Commonplace to identify the needs & concerns of residents in Devons Road. This information is now being used to influence decision making about new community projects and developments. We're also looking at other opportunities in Poplar because we can see Commonplace being a tool for ongoing communications with our tenants. Working with Commonplace has been a great experience and they come highly recommended to other Housing Associations." Robert Lansbury, Poplar HARCA

    West Hampstead

    "Commonplace has been an invaluable tool, really helped our engagement work. It connects with those not reached by previous consultations - and provides highly visible and eye-catching record of the results. The comments submitted will inform the final draft of our Neighbourhood Plan. We would wholeheartedly recommend this tool to other communities." James Earl, Fortune Green & West Hampstead Neighbourhood Development Forum
