Why is “placemaking” important for local communities?

Jurisdiction: Western Australia

A strong community is created through creating a “sense of place” through engagement with the community, partnerships with businesses and industry

Local government authorities provide a broad range of services for the community, aimed at improving liveability. A strong community is created through creating a “sense of place” through engagement with the community, partnerships with businesses and industry and a long view for improved outcomes for the physical, emotional, mental and environmental outcomes for local communities.

A great deal of emphasis is placed nowadays on the development of precincts in community and regional development. These might be cultural and creative; industrial; manufacturing; tourism and or agricultural.

What data is available, and can we develop a tool to measure or simulate the value / benefits these initiatives bring to our local community in both social and economic terms that can be utilised for refining and directing future policy, strategy and allocation of funding.
