East Hampshire District Council launched their Whitehill & Bordon Low Car Design platform. Working with Commonplace and Feria Urbanism the pilot team produced an interactive map consultation tool aiming to identify opportunities and barriers to reducing residential parking in connection with the Council’s efforts to tackle the climate emergency.
In addition to this, the council were keen to test the effectiveness of digital consultation methods in East Hampshire in generating a higher rate of engagement and better informing the community on trade-offs around planning compared to more traditional/less technologically advanced methods that had previously been used.
The success of the pilot was highlighted by the consultation leading to a more than fivefold increase to local resident engagement in plan-making.
