SETsquared research report published

“We commissioned Eastside Community Trust (formerly Up Our Street) to undertake two related pieces of work in the early stages of planning for the Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus. The first was a review of existing shops and services in the local area, so we could understand the local ecosystem and how our campus could contribute to it – and where we needed to be mindful of existing businesses and communities. The second was a workshop, with a very wide range of stakeholders, exploring what locations in the city they find welcoming and which are off-putting – and how we can build a campus that is genuinely inclusive. The two reports were detailed, thoughtful and constructive and they ensured that a very wide range of voices were heard in a critical stage of the development of the campus.”
