We were commissioned by Broadland Council to prepare applications on behalf of the Aylsham Town Team for the Portas Pilot programme (commenced at prior employment with Urban Delivery). Building on our previous work on the Regeneration and Delivery Strategy we liaised with landlords and tenants to secure their support, set up a working party to prepare the application and accompanying YouTube video and assemble the necessary documentation.
We helped the Town Team to identify their priorities, define and plan an innovative and effective suite of projects and express their passion and determination to support their town centre. More importantly, we created a structure and process that will create a positive legacy for Aylsham regardless of whether it was awarded Pilot status or not.
