Street Space has been commissioned by Be First / London Borough of Barking and Dagenham to facilitate community engagement and collaborative design with residents living in and moving through Martin's Corner. We have developed initial design ideas and aspirations with local community members to submit to TfL as part of a Liveable Neighbourhood funding bid.
The Barking Bridge Project was initiated by local resident Tim Hunt who wanted to do something about the state of the two footbridges on Essex Road, Barking. Street Space are supporting Tim with additional community engagement and a collaborative bid for funding to transform the footbridges through community-led regeneration in partnership with LBBD and Studio 3 Arts.
Street Space is working with award-winning architects IF_DO and members of Enfield Methodist Church to develop and support the delivery of a comprehensive community engagement strategy. This strategy will be facilitated by locally embedded community engagement professionals and their research and connections will go on to underpin and inform the design of a new community space in Elsinge, Enfield.
