Community engagement

As set out in the principles for Manydown, the new garden community will be shaped through active engagement with people and organisations across the town, borough and county to create the networks, bonds and processes that will greatly enrich the project into the future.


18 months of extensive community engagement took place to inform the development of the masterplan submitted as part of the outline planning application for Manydown in March 2017.
