Spaceshaper in Action

Spaceshaper 9-14 is a workshop-based toolkit that enables young people to engage in consultation about public spaces, to assess the quality of a public space to inform its future development. The tool sits alongside Spaceshaper (used with adult audiences), and provides developers, local authorities and others with a methodology for collecting data from all sections of the community.

Whilst developing Spaceshaper 9-14 we found that the tool works well with mixed groups of adults and young people – and can be used as an inter-generational tool, to support engagement and consultation about spaces – be they parks, squares or streets.

    “It’s really interesting to get young voices involved,” says Wendy Jackson, Regeneration Manager at Forest of Dean District Council. “There’s a really open and honest approach. If you ask a question, you will get a straight response.”

    “Spaceshaper 9-14 is practical and involves young people,” says Claire Smith, neighbourhood environment manager for Wakefield Council Neighbourhood Services.
