This project has involved the creation of a community-led contra-plan that reflects the aspirations of local residents as an alternative strategy to a developer scheme submitted for Planning. The contra-plan was devised to influence the development and to allow the community's needs to be reflected in a modified design. The Planning Application to which the residents had objected was refused in principle - the contra-plan had been a successful focus of the residents' aspirations for a development that they could support. Further discussions between representatives of both developer and residents were initiated in an attempt to generate a design that the community could support.
